Who We Are.

The global business community's translation and print solution provider

100 years of printing excellence

Global Speed is a full-service provider of printing and translation solutions. We help our clients produce, localize, and distribute content worldwide.

We are a subsidiary of Yamagata Corporation. Founded in 1906, this is one of Japan’s oldest printing companies. With over 100 years of experience as its foundation, Global Speed embodies the meticulous quality and attention to detail that Japan is known for, as well as the pace and flexibility that modern business demands.

Our goal at Global Speed is to provide the international business community with access to Japanese quality and fast, reliable service. We are focused on serving customers who want to print and distribute outside of their home countries, bridging cultural and linguistic gaps which would otherwise be difficult to cross.

The mission of Global Speed is...

  • to deliver a comprehensive printing and translation solution
  • to make Japanese print quality accessible to the world
  • to make multinational printing and distributing as simple as possible

Global Speed provided an excellent service. Their staff were prompt to respond and spoke fluent English. They understood exactly what we wanted and provided a superior product. We really appreciated the high quality of paper and ink, and the attention to detail in their work. I would highly recommend them to any business, local or overseas, looking for print services in Japan.
