In the beginning the home-based lift truck marketplace 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 equipment expansion venture. Sales of these products were primarily targeted to state-run firms, large scale corporations, and the armed forces. This ultimately led to a merger with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division begun trade operations throughout Korea to overhaul and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a lift truck production plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical education became the new focus for improving quality and product development.
Daewoo started the first home-based forklift business in 1967, and rapidly acquired a whopping 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 situation of substantial expansion of their forklift operations.
In 1981, Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the United States, proposed a cooperative venture project to respond to competitive pressures in the US materials handling industry. This plan drastically expanded Daewoo’s lift truck sales. Construction was completed in 1984 to facilitate a modern plant which helped launch the business for the fabrication of high added-value products suited for export. In 1993, the company had a international sales system and started exporting versions they had established through in-house technology, 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 overseas markets.
