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.
