Start-up of the forklift business
In the beginning the domestic lift truck market in Korea was an open import enterprise. Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. began in 1960, to import fully assembled lift trucks as part of a domestic machinery expansion project. Product sales of these products were originally targeted to state-run firms, large scale businesses, 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 overhaul 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.
Forklift Export Growth
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 sophisticated technological enhancements combined with sales success placed them in a position of substantial growth of their forklift 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 joint-venture proved highly successful for Daewoo and their forklift 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 corporation had a global sales system and started exporting models they had developed through in-house expertise, as an sovereign 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 markets.
