Korea’s initial domestic forklift market was an open-import enterprise. In the 1960’s, Korea Machinery Co. Ltd. begun to import assembled forklifts as part of a nationwide equipment expansion venture. Early product sales of this industrialized equipment focused on large business communities, the armed services and on state-run firms. This ultimately led to a merger with Daewoo Heavy Industries Ltd. In 1976, the Forklift Division begun business operations throughout Korea to overhaul and sell this heavy equipment. By 1978, a lift truck production plant was successfully completed. Continuous technical education grew to become the new focus for enhancing quality and product development. Domestic forklift business for Daewoo started in 1967 and grew to an amazing 90% market share in Korea. By the 1980’s, Daewoo’s superior technological improvements combined with sales success placed them in a position of substantial expansion of their forklift operations. Caterpillar Industrial Inc. of the U.S. in 1981, proposed a cooperative venture project to assist them in the very competitive North American materials handling market. This project proved highly profitable for Daewoo and their lift truck 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 international sales network and started exporting models they had developed through in-house technology, as an sovereign product. 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.
