The Doosan & Daewoo History
Since Daewoo started building products in South Korea in 1976, the company has changed and grown around the world. In the 1990s, Daewoo established a presence in the U.S. market when it established Daewoo Machinery Corp. Doosan purchased Daewoo in the early 2000s. Because of this acquisition, the Lynx and Puma CNC Lathes can be found with both the name Doosan and Daewoo and are sometimes listed with both names together. The purchase of Daewoo, by Doosan, began in the winter of 2003 and finalized in spring of 2005.
The following CNC machines were released under the Doosan Infracore America branding: PUMA TT series, the PUMA MX series, the DMV 8035s and the DHP 5000. At that time, they had over 100 CNC products and were shipping over 6,000 CNC machines every year to 68 sales/service offices around the world. Today they have 164 dealer networks. About 19% of their sales are from the Americas. In 2016 the company changed its name to Doosan Machine Tools but Daewoo ceased production in 2005.
