In 1960, following his previous experience and works, Mr. Manuel Luna Perbech started his business activity by opening a small workshop for repairing public works and agricultural machinery.
The development of the Spanish economy, the high demand of equipment in the national market and the expansion of the business converged, two years later, giving way to the manufacturing of the first hydraulic cranes.
During the remaining sixties the manufacturing activities extended continuously up to annual productions over 40 cranes, whereas the repairs remained on a secondary level.
The premises were extended parallel to the increase in production and in 1975 -with more than 600 cranes supplied- it was decided to build a new factory for the production of Front Lift Trucks of high tonnage, from 10 t to 50 t of lifting capacity.
Both factories continued their own development and in 1989 the plant for Front Lift Trucks was enlarged with the aim of starting the production of Reach Stackers whose first unit was delivered to the Spanish Railways during that year.
In 1996 a new product was added to the LUNA production range: the Mobile Harbour Cranes for loading and unloading ships up to a “Panamax” size.
So far there are more than 3000 LUNA machines working efficiently and profitably for their owners in numerous countries worldwide.
