In this video series we visit FastCap in Bellingham, Washington. FastCap provides products and tools to accommodate the professional cabinet maker and woodworker. Throughout this "Gemba Live" series of videos you'll see how lean thinking has transformed ALL aspects of FastCap's business including operations, shipping, engineering, sales & marketing, customer service, accounting, and even the bathrooms! And last, but certainly not least, we even pay a visit to FastCap's airplane hangar to witness how lean thinking has made an impact there!

The Lean Airplane HangarThe next time you hear "lean won't work here" you can have them watch this video. Clint Marley, an experienced airplane mechanic, struggled with the concept of lean thinking for many years. But, as you will see in this video he is now totally on board, no pun intended, with lean thinking! Paul Akers also shares how he even implements lean thinking to improving the cockpit of the airplane!
