Doosan's forklift history
In the beginning the home-based lift truck market in Korea was an open import enterprise. Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun in 1960, to import fully assembled lift trucks as part of a home-based equipment expansion venture. Sales of these goods were initially targeted to state-run corporations, large scale organizations, and the military. This eventually led to a merger 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 lift truck manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical education grew to become the new focus for enhancing quality and product development.
Expansion of Lift Truck Exports
Domestic lift truck business for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an astounding 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980â??s, Daewooâ??s advanced technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a situation of substantial growth of their forklift business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a joint venture project to help them in the highly competitive North American materials handling market. This joint-venture proved highly profitable for Daewoo and their lift truck sales expanded greatly. In 1984, the company finished development of a new facility to help in producing high end value-added products for export. In 1993, the corporation had a international sales system and started exporting models 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 expansion possibilities into international marketplaces.
