in the Basque town of Eibar, the company was first called Imperial Española. Its
typewriters were originally called Patria, just like the Swiss Patria
they were building under license.
Around 1962 the typewriter was renamed Amaya, and in 1965 the company was renamed Industrial Mecanográfica, S.A., or IMESA.
