The Corp1 Story


Corp1 was originally formed as Del Corp America (Del Corp) in 1989 by Carolyn McKown after helping build and grow Corporation Service Company (CSC), leaving to start her own company. Carolyn and Mike McKown later formed a sister company called CorpAmerica and operated both companies simultaneously until they sold CorpAmerica to Lexis Document Solutions in 2000. The McKown's retained Del Corp until they retired a second time, at which point they handed off Del Corp to their (then) daughter-in-law, Kelly McKown. Kelly managed Del Corp while she worked for other corporate service companies, ultimately becoming President of Incorporating Services, Ltd. (ISL) in 2003.

Having an entrepreneurial spirit, in December of 2010, Kelly left ISL to pursue her dreams. She decided to grow Del Corp into a bigger and better company, drawing from her successes at ISL. She found an amazing domain name and changed the name of the company to Corp1, Inc., to create a new brand that would become recognizable around the world as a leader in the incorporation industry. Corp1's corporate services include company formations (incorporating), registered agent, corporate filings, corporate record retrieval, UCC searches and filings and other corporate services.

Corp1 expanded into Denver, Colorado in 2011 offering Registered Agent, company formation and corporate filing services, and court and criminal record searches. In August, 2021 Corp1 acquired Dan Denham's company, Search Company International, Inc. This gave Corp1 a physical office with staff in the Denver Tech Center and expanded our services into background screening and court record searches in all of Colorado's 64 counties.

Also in August, 2021, Corp1 officially opened a branch office in Cheyenne, Wyoming providing all the same services as Colorado and Delaware. Like Delaware, Wyoming is another key company formation state so Corp1 is pleased to bring our level of exceptional service and competitive pricing to those that need services in Wyoming!

We have our sights set on other mid-west areas where our service ethic is really needed. Stay Tuned!!


As a commitment to the industry and to better ourselves for our clients, Corp1 staff takes all education courses offered by the National Public Records Research Association (NPRRA): *Industry Background; *UCC Basics; *Registered Agent Service; *UCC Intermediate.
