Start-up of the lift truck industry
Korea's original domestic lift truck marketplace was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960's, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. started to import assembled lift trucks as part of a nationwide equipment expansion project. Early product sales of this industrialized equipment focused on large business communities, the armed services and on state-run corporations. This ultimately led to a unification with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division commenced 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 improving quality and product development.
Expansion of Forklift Exports
Daewoo began the first domestic lift truck business in 1967, and rapidly gained a whopping 90% share in the Korean Materials Handling market. By the 1980's, Daewoo's sophisticated technological enhancements combined with sales success placed them in a situation of significant expansion of their forklift business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a cooperative venture project to help them in the very competitive North American materials handling market. This joint-venture proved highly successful for Daewoo and their forklift sales expanded greatly. In 1984, the company completed construction of a new facility to help in producing high end value-added products for export. In 1993, the company had a international sales network and started exporting models they had established through in-house expertise, 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 opportunities into international marketplaces.
