Start-up of the lift truck industry
In the beginning the domestic lift truck market in Korea was an open import enterprise. Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun in 1960, to import fully assembled forklifts as part of a home-based machinery expansion venture. Product sales of these products were initially targeted to state-run corporations, large scale businesses, and the military. This eventually led to a unification with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division commenced business operations throughout Korea to service and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a forklift manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical education became the new focus for enhancing quality and product development.
Development of Lift Truck Exports
Home-based lift truck business for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an astonishing 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980's, Daewoo's superior technological advancements combined with sales success placed them in a position of significant growth of their lift truck business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a joint venture project to assist them in the highly competitive North American materials handling market. This project proved highly successful for Daewoo and their lift truck sales expanded greatly. In 1984, the company completed construction of a new facility to help in manufacturing high end value-added goods for export. In 1993, the company had a global sales system and started exporting models they had established through in-house expertise, as an independent product. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing growth opportunities into international markets.
