Doosan Infracore

Portable Power

1896-1949

Doosan took the first step in its legendary history in 1896, when Park Seung-jik opened a small, modern store in Baeogae, Jongro 4, Seoul. From this first store, we continued to build on that success. In 1946, Too Pyung Park, the successor to Park Seung-jik, changed the small store into the Doosan Store, heralding the beginning of Doosan’s modern history.
