Manufactured in Cervera, Lleida, the firm was founded in 1952 by Marti in partnership with brothers Josep and Antoni Morell to build three-wheeled microcars. The first machine was produced in 1954 using an engine from Iresa but these proved problematical and subsequent machines were fitted with Hispano Villiers two-strokes.
The firm changed the name of the machines to Jurka in 1955. One of the three-wheelers had bodywork by Capella of Barcelona, and was very attractive. Development ceased when an arsonist destroyed the workshop. In all, it seems that 5 prototypes were built.
Shortly before the Spanish Civil War, in 1935 Marti built an aeroplane.
