RUN AHEAD OF THE PACK
For more than 60 years since the founding of Daedong during the tumultuous years following the 1945 liberation of Korea, Daedong has been the leading Korean manufacturer of mechanised farming equipment. Since Daedong was founded in 1947 by the past Chairman Sam Man Kim, Daedong has continued to follow our founder's footsteps by rapidly responding to market challenges and constantly growing our technical knowledge and production capacity for mechanised farming equipment.
Starting with the successful introduction of the first water-cooled diesel engine in 1949, Daedong has continued to be a pioneer in the development of mechanised farming equipment technology. Noteworthy accomplishments include the power tiller in 1963, followed by the development of a full product line of tractors, combines, rice transplanters and garden tillers. Even now, Daedong is investing heavily in leading-edge technologies and new production facilities to assure the world class competitiveness of Kioti Daedong products. Daedong Industrial Co, Ltd., located in Daegu, South Korea, has been a world leader in the engineering and development of farming equipment for more than 50 years.
Daedong's successful efforts at export diversification have resulted in the acceptance of Daedong products in more than 30 global markets. The need of customers who have relied on Daedong to fulfil their farming equipment need for 50 years can also rely on Daedong to respond to the wide range of challenges and opportunities faced by global agricultural community in the 21st century.
