Start-up of the forklift industry

At first the domestic forklift 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 machinery expansion project. Sales of these products were originally targeted to state-run firms, large scale corporations, and the military. This ultimately led to a merger 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 forklift production plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical training grew to become the new focus for improving quality and product development.

Expansion of Lift Truck Exports

Home-based lift truck trade for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an astounding 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980’s, Daewoo’s superior technological enhancements combined with sales success placed them in a position of significant expansion of their lift truck operations.

In 1981, Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the United States, proposed a cooperative enterprise project to respond to competitive pressures in the US materials handling industry. This endeavor greatly expanded Daewoo’s forklift sales. Construction was completed in 1984 to facilitate a contemporary plant which helped launch the business for the manufacture of high end added-value goods suited for export. In 1993, the corporation had a international sales network and started exporting models they had developed through in-house expertise, as an sovereign product. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing expansion possibilities into overseas markets.
