Secoinsa 40/1

The legendary Spanish computer equipment manufacturer SECOINSA. was incorporated in 1975. The major shareholders were Telefónica, the INI Group, Fujitsu, PIHER and eight major banks. This company was founded as part of an ambitious plan for national computer production in order to align the country’s computer industry to other much more developed countries.

The SECOINSA project soon failed, and the Japanese company, Fujitsu, purchased most of the shares. It used the factories that were built by the consortium as its Spanish headquarters.

The Secoinsa 40 was programmed in Cobol, RPG and Fortran. It had a RAM memory of from 256 Kbytes to 2Mbytes and removable or fixed disks with  capacities from 50 Mbytes to 800 Mbytes.
