Doosan's lift truck history
Korea's initial domestic forklift market was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960's, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun to import assembled lift trucks as part of a national equipment expansion project. Initial product sales of this manufacturing equipment focused on large business communities, the armed services and on state-run firms. This ultimately led to a merger with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division commenced business operations throughout Korea to overhaul and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a lift truck manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical instruction grew to become the new focus for improving 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 progressive technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a position of substantial expansion of their forklift business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a cooperative venture project to assist them in the highly competitive North American materials handling market. This joint-venture proved highly successful for Daewoo and their lift truck product sales expanded greatly. In 1984, the company finished construction of a new facility to help in manufacturing high end value-added goods for export. In 1993, the company had a global sales system and started exporting designs they had established through in-house technology, as an independent product. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing growth opportunities into international marketplaces.
