Korea’s original home-based lift truck market was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960’s, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. began to import assembled forklifts as part of a nationwide equipment expansion project. Initial sales of this manufacturing equipment focused on large business communities, the armed forces and on state-run firms. This ultimately led to a unification with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division commenced trade operations throughout Korea to service and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a forklift manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical instruction grew to become the new focus for improving quality and product development.
Daewoo started the first home-based lift truck business in 1967, and quickly acquired a massive 90% share in the Korean Materials Handling market. By the 1980’s, Daewoo’s superior technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a position of considerable expansion of their forklift business.
In 1981, Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the United States, proposed a cooperative venture project to respond to competitive pressures in the US materials handling market. This venture radically expanded Daewoo’s lift truck sales. Construction was finished in 1984 to facilitate a contemporary plant which helped launch the company for the fabrication of high added-value products suited for export. In 1993, the corporation had a global sales network and started exporting models they had developed through in-house technology, as an sovereign brand. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing growth possibilities into overseas marketplaces.
