Think Globally, Act Locally



1-StopGlobal started as just an inspiration.

The world’s oldest independent company, Japan’s Kongō Gumi Co., Ltd. has a long history that spans 60 generations from when it was formed in 578 by a Korean immigrant when it was sold in 2006.

Don Shin, the CEO of 1-Stop, was fascinated by the dedication, craftsmanship, and longevity of Kongō Gumi Co., Ltd., and his aspiration to connect the East and the West grew.

With that, the headquarters was moved to Los Angeles in 2001 and 1-StopGlobal took off.

The management principles that fueled 1-STOP’s development are as follows:

  • Never take out a loan.
  • Never delay payment.
  • Service always comes first.
  • All net profits shall be used to improve service.

When this management philosophy and talented employees came together, 1-StopGlobal grew as one of America’s biggest companies that specializes in Asian languages.
