Daewoo Appliances

Daewoo Electronics sells fridge freezers, washing machines, microwaves and vacuum cleaners in the UK

Daewoo Electronics is a home electronics company which currently produces air-conditioning units, refrigerators and washing machines that are sold globally and is is the third largest electronics firm based in South Korea after Samsung and LG.

Established in 1971, it has since grown into a global business with more than sixty four production sites, research and development and sales centres in more than forty countries worldwide.

Daewoo Electronics Sales UK (DESUK) was established in November 1993. The UK Daewoo operation majors on fridge freezers, mainly side by side American style refrigeration, home laundry products like washing machines and washer dryers, microwave ovens and vacuum cleaners.

The Daewoo company went through a bankruptcy in 1999 after Asian financial crisis and is currently owned completely by a group of creditors.

In October 2010, it was announced that the creditor group owning the company is to sell it to an Iran-based electronic company, Entekhab Industrial Group of Iran would buy the firm for $529 million in November 2010 from its creditors.

Entekhab industrial Group competed with Electrolux of Sweden for the acquisition.

In June 2011, it was reported that creditors of Daewoo decided to drop the deal with Entekhab group over funding uncertainties, Entekhab Group had threatened to take legal action in response although no reports of such action have yet come to light. At which point Electrolux was rumoured to still be interested in purchasing the Daewoo brand, reputedly to expand its presence in the Asian region, but none of the rumours ever came to fruition and up until this point if writing in 2012 Daewoo's future remained uncertain.

Then late in August 2012 Daewoo was bought fro its creditors by the Dongbu Group who outbid Sweden's Electrolux. Quite what this means for Daewoo in the future is unclear.

Third Party Manufacturing

Daewoo have and appear to be continuing to manufacture under other brand names, notably some Baumatic fridge freezers, especially the Baumatic American style side by side refrigeration would seem to be sourced from Daewoo along with several home laundry products, free standing washing machines in particular.

They also produce side by side fridge freezers for Bosch.

It would also appear that the more upmarket aimed Swan Premier range sold exclusively by Littlewoods is also being produced by Daewoo.

And also some own label brand machines for Currys.

  Daewoo Market Position

Daewoo appears to follow a similar model to Samsung in that, the lower range products are exactly that, lower market range products with both washing machines and fridge freezers.

The more upmarket ranges seem better equipped and better specified internally but just how durable that these prove to be has yet to be fully ascertained.

In both areas there is fierce competition from the more traditional and better known brands such as Bosch, Electrolux, Hoover, Hotpoint and many others that are, to UK customers, far better known and respected manufacturers of domestic appliances than Daewoo is.

  Daewoo Service

Primarily Daewoo service appears to be carried out by Repaircare presently although we are aware that some independent retailers do carry out their own service on Daewoo products.

There are presently no known issues with Daewoo service in the UK at the time of writing.

  Daewoo Spare Parts

Although there is little demand for Daewoo spare parts we have not experienced any particular difficulty in obtaining them when required.

We would say that, on balance, that Daewoo spares can be a little pricey but not to the same levels of some other brands although this may be due to only one nominated UK distributor.
