Start-up of the lift truck business
Originally the home-based lift truck marketplace in Korea was an open import enterprise. Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. started in 1960, to import fully assembled forklifts as part of a domestic machinery expansion venture. Product sales of these goods were primarily targeted to state-run companies, large scale corporations, and the military. This eventually 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 production plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical instruction grew to become the new focus for improving quality and product development.
Lift Truck Export Expansion
Daewoo started the first home-based forklift business in 1967, and rapidly gained a massive 90% share in the Korean Materials Handling market. By the 1980’s, Daewoo’s progressive technological enhancements combined with sales success placed them in a position of considerable expansion of their forklift business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a joint venture project to assist them in the very competitive North American materials handling industry. This joint-venture proved highly profitable for Daewoo and their forklift product 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 corporation had a international sales system and started exporting versions they had developed 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 expansion possibilities into overseas marketplaces.
