Construcciones Agrometálicas de Levante, S. A. (or CALSA) is one of the lesser known Spanish heavy engineering specialist in producing earthmovers. The small firm was also a tractor and loader manufacturer. It was founded in 1960 in Zaragoza, Spain. The CALSA company also supplied and made finished parts for both the local crane manufacturers named IASA and IBESA.

In 1980, it was purchased by Tenneco, the then-owner of J.I. Case. After the Tenneco company bought Calsa their factory was geared up and reorganized by larger American CASE so by 1990 the CALSA name was no longer used and production ended, but was quickly restarted now under the name of the Case who soon relaunched their own new 1990s Model Range with some of them inspired from CALSA 4X4 ideas.

With standard 4WD axles and the drivetrain mechanicals employed for all their models mainly from ENASAThese CALSA models were essentially aimed for the Spanish Agriculture, Construction and for Mining Industries, and many of their models were exported to France also. During the 1970s, another powerplant option that CALSA offered was with Barreiros diesel truck running gear. After the company was acquired by CASE, the Zaragoza CALSA factory was closed and revamped, and turned into a brand-new Case crawler tractor and tractor factory in 1990. This brought an end for CALSA of 30 years of machinery manufacturing business.
