Doosan's forklift history
Koreaâ??s original home-based forklift market was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960â??s, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun to import assembled lift trucks as part of a national machinery expansion venture. Early sales of this industrial equipment focused on large business groups, the armed services and on state-run companies. This eventually led to a unification with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division begun trade operations throughout Korea to service 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 enhancing quality and product development.
Development of Lift Truck Exports
Daewoo began the first domestic lift truck business in 1967, and rapidly gained a massive 90% share in the Korean Materials Handling market. By the 1980â??s, Daewooâ??s advanced technological advancements combined with sales success placed them in a situation of substantial growth of their lift truck operations.
In 1981, Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the United States, proposed a joint venture project to respond to competitive pressures in the US materials handling industry. This project greatly expanded Daewooâ??s lift truck sales. Construction was completed in 1984 to facilitate a new plant which helped establish the business for the fabrication of high end added-value products suited for export. In 1993, the company had a international sales system and started exporting versions 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 opportunities into international marketplaces.
