Doosan – More than just Excavators and Skidsteers

As Korea’s first modern company with 124 years of history, Doosan has gone through many changes and significant growth over the years. Toward the end of the 1990s, we started to make bolder, innovative moves to completely reshape ourselves at an unprecedented rate, and have achieved remarkable growth. As a result, Doosan has established itself as a world-class infrastructure support business (ISB) provider, with about 40,000 employees in 38 countries.

Doosan—a combined word of “doo (a measuring unit of grains)” and “san (mountain)”— means “little grains of sand that together make a mountain.” The name reflects our belief that a greater achievement can be made when everyone involved unites.

Throughout its 124-year history, Doosan People have lived by their beliefs and philosophy that they can achieve a greater goal when they join forces.

Doosan Fulfills Basic Human Needs

To help create more prosperity for humanity, Doosan has focused on providing what people need the most.

In 1896, founding Chairman Seung-Jik Park opened Korea’s first modern store, the original entity of Doosan, which later earned a reputation as a trendsetter for developing the first modern cosmetic products in Korea.

In the 1950s, Doosan started to diversify its business as a corporate group by setting foot in international trading and establishing Oriental Brewery(later changed to OB Beer). Doosan further expanded its business to construction, food and beverages, machinery, media, cultural services and more in the 1960s.

Afterward, Doosan’s focus was shifted to areas that are more closely related to fundamentally contributing to human lives, such as energy, clean water, roads, infrastructure and buildings.

Doosan Has No Fear of Change

In the year that marked the 100th anniversary of our founding, the company incorporated multiple subsidiaries into the holding company and implemented advanced processes and systems.

Since then, Doosan has carried out a series of M&A deals to successfully transform itself into a global leader in the infrastructure support business sector.

Doosan Expands Its Global Footprint

Doosan competes and thrives both at home and abroad. From large-scale power plants that generate electricity in India to desalination plants that supply clean water to millions of people in the Middle East, to construction machines that build earthworks across China’s vast territory, and energy storage systems and fuel cells—which show exponential growth in demand—Doosan’s advanced technologies help create value for everyone in the world.

Doosan Prepares for the Future

Doosan will stay committed to developing core technologies in the areas of collaborative robots, mobile fuel cells, automated and unmanned construction machines, and more to gain a strong competitive edge in the market.

By providing clean water and light, as well as solutions that can help people build their lives and transform ideas into a reality, the company aims to create a world awash with opportunities so that everyone can fully unleash their potential.
