Doosan's forklift history

Korea‚??s original domestic forklift market was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960‚??s, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. began to import assembled lift trucks as part of a national equipment expansion venture. Early sales of this industrialized equipment focused on large business communities, the armed forces and on state-run firms. This eventually led to a unification with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division begun trade operations throughout Korea to overhaul and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a forklift manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical training became the new focus for enhancing quality and product development.

Expansion of Forklift Exports

Home-based forklift business for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an astounding 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980‚??s, Daewoo‚??s sophisticated technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a position of substantial growth of their lift truck operations.

In 1981, Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the United States, proposed a joint enterprise project to respond to competitive pressures in the US materials handling industry. This endeavor drastically expanded Daewoo‚??s lift truck sales. Construction was finished in 1984 to facilitate a contemporary plant which helped set up the company for the manufacture of high end added-value goods suited for export. In 1993, the corporation had a international sales system and started exporting designs they had established through in-house expertise, as an independent brand. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing expansion opportunities into overseas marketplaces.
