The history of the company begins in 1896 in Seoul, when an entrepreneur named Park Sung-Jik opened a small retail store. Trade progressed quite successfully, and in 1946, the heir to the founder, gave the business a new name - Doosan. In the 1950s, the company began investing in brewing and international trade, and also launched the production of its own engines, medium-sized engines under the license of the German company Man and small engines under the license of the Japanese brand Isuzu.
In the 1960s, funds were invested in construction, food, engineering, the media and cultural services. By the early 1970s, Doosan had taken a strong leadership position in consumer goods and business, taking into account national characteristics and traditions.
During the 1980s, the company's priority was to strengthen its international status. In the 1990s, the company’s activities were divided into three areas: information and retail, consumer goods and high-tech materials.
In 2005, a significant event took place in the company's history: Doosan acquired Daewoo Heavy Industries, which significantly strengthened the company's position in the market of engines and construction equipment. From that moment, all equipment began to be produced under the double Doosan-Daewoo brand. But in early 2007, after ensuring continuity, the Doosan Group switched to a single brand - Doosan. In 2007, Doosan immediately acquired three divisions of the largest American company Ingersoll-Rand Company Ltd., including the world famous manufacturer of construction equipment Bobcat.
At the moment, Doosan is part of the largest South Korean financial and industrial groups and manufactures wheeled and tracked excavators, frontal loaders, mining equipment and articulated dump trucks, metal and wood reloaders, mini excavators and demolition vehicles. All manufactured equipment is of high quality, safe operation, reliability and a long service life.
