Multimodal gets a lift from Doosan

Daewoo began making forklifts in the 1960s, and less than a decade later over 1,000 had been sold.

Daewoo reached an historic 10-year agreement in 1983 to build trucks under the Caterpillar brand.

The first factory to be built specifically to produce forklifts for export markets was completed a year later.

By 1998, DHI had established a name for product quality, with extensive R&D facilities and the completion of the renowned Reliability Center and in 2000, celebrated the sale of their 200,000th unit.

Our UK presence was established in 1994, firstly in Hinckley, before we moved, via Crick, to Northampton. Initially Daewoo forklifts were sold in the UK through Lex Harvey, the lift truck distributor.

After Finning bought Lex Harvey, we parted company with them and started our own operation (Euro Daewoo UK Ltd), making Daewoo trucks for sale here through our own dealer network.

We are perhaps best known for are our 2.5 tonne gas and diesel range in the UK (which account for around half of our UK truck sales).

Our UK range covers over 100 models in total, spanning 1.3-16 tonnes, electric, gas and diesel.

The UK is not only one of our largest export market outside of the US, it is also strategically important for sales in Europe (where we also have a base in Frameries, Belgium).

We have 58% of the domestic forklifts market in Korea, but 65% of our total forklift production is exported, to over 90 countries, and 40% comes to Europe.
