About Us

“Why does DAC exist, for what purpose?”
DAC is for the people – who work for, who sell to, who buy from and for people who enjoy the outdoors.

Jake Lah
CEO


The driving force of DAC is owner Jake Lah.

The most important thing to know about Jake (and DAC) is that he’s not just a successful businessman, he’s a gifted tent designer — he’s a tent designer with his own pole factory. This is a boon for DAC’s corporate customers as well as for the user.

When Jake works on new tents with other designers, he brings years of experience developing stronger, lighter, and higher performing tents. He provides technical guidance and sure-handed development to shepherd new ideas to mar-ket.

Product design and innovation isn’t a marketing exercise at DAC, it’s an obsession.

What is the Best Way?

This question guides our purpose - what is the best way? Not the easiest way, not the commercial way,
not the known way but the best way. We study, we search, we try, we fail,
but we dare to ask the question and try patiently to answer.

Best product

Jake’s dream was to build the best possible products

Beautiful Community

DAC has been trying to build a small community
where workers trust each other and enjoy working
in cozy and green atmosphere.

Social Responsibility

DAC has supported Kakdang Welfare Foundation in both time and treasury.
Over the years DAC has do-nated $2 million dollars to the Foundation.
DAC also sent powdered milk for children in North Korea.

What is the Best Way?

This question guides our purpose - what is the best way? Not the easiest way, not the commercial way,
not the known way but the best way. We study, we search, we try, we fail, but we dare to ask the question and try patiently to answer.

Consistency in quality

Since we never know whether our products will protect someone's life in Antarctica, or on a picnic in the park, our quality must be consistently excellent. We strive to meet and exceed our customers' expectations through our consistency and dependability.

Integrity

We are dedicated to being trustworthy and sincere in what we do, how we do it and for whom we do it. We believe that soundness of purpose, process and product creates harmony and wholeness.

Mindfulness

We are  respecting each other, our environment and we try to be mindful of our impact on our country and the world. While we are self-critical in order to improve ourselves, we also pay attention to the elements of life that create meaning for us: such as plants, music, food, etc.

5 Heroes of DAC in early days

"It is my honor and privilege to introduce the heroes who saved DAC when times were hard,
- SN Kim, YH Kim, TH Kim, CJ Lee and DO Park.
Nobody abandoned the sinking ship that was DAC, even though they had many opportunities to leave.
I feel so grateful to have spent the last 20 years with them."

- Jake Lah


Some old members got grey hair after working more than 30 years at DAC.
There are younger members who will drive DAC in the future.
