Initially the domestic forklift market in Korea was an open import enterprise. Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun in 1960, to import fully assembled forklifts as part of a domestic equipment expansion venture. Product sales of these goods were primarily targeted to state-run corporations, large scale corporations, and the armed forces. This ultimately led to a merger 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 forklift manufacturing plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical education became the new focus for improving quality and product development.
Home-based forklift trade for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an astounding 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980’s, Daewoo’s superior technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a situation of significant expansion of their lift truck business.
Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a joint venture project to help them in the highly competitive North American materials handling industry. This joint-venture proved highly profitable for Daewoo and their forklift sales expanded greatly. In 1984, the company completed development of a new facility to help in manufacturing high end value-added goods for export. In 1993, the company had a global sales network and started exporting models they had established through in-house expertise, as an independent brand. Certifications were then acquired from CE of Europe, UL of the United States and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, securing expansion opportunities into international marketplaces.
