50 Years of Forklift Excellence

Doosan is a global brand with an outstanding focus on what matters, both as a manufacturer and as a company.

About Doosan

Since the production of the first forklift in Korea in 1968, the Forklifts Division has been determined to meet customers’ needs for quality material handling supplies and services.

We design all our machines to offer simple, powerful and performance as well as operator comfort and environmental friendliness, that help you to get the most from your investment. As a result, we have won many awards.

The World’s Best Awards are given to the most distinguished product in 2000, the Human Engineering Design Awards was awarded to our superior products in terms of the driver’s convenience and the Safety Awards, from the United Kingdom’s Forklift Truck Association Awards, are given to the product that provides superior safety.

 

We now supply our forklifts to over 90 countries and have become a preferred supplier to many of the world’s leading fleet users. 

Doosan, the name behind one of the UK’s leading forklift brands – is a major force in materials handling. Established following the acquisition of Daewoo Heavy Industries in 2005 by the Doosan Group, the company is now part of a $21bn organisation that stretches across the globe.

Our UK presence was established in 1994, and our range covers over 100 models in total, spanning 1.0-25.0-tonnes, electric, gas, diesel.

More than just a name

Doosan is made up of two Korean words. ‘Doo’ means a unit of grain, while ‘San’ means a mountain. Together, they mean ‘little grains that can build a mighty mountain’, suggesting that great things can be achieved when even the tiniest forces join together in a unified effort.
