Meet Thomas

My name is Thomas and I have worked at Fastcap since February of 2016. I started first in our production department and for the last 2.5 years as customer service and as our online order processor. I enjoy every day working at Fastcap. My favorite things about working here include our many shop dogs (like Yoshi the office dog), getting to spend time with my coworkers who are generous, funny, and dedicated to what they do, as well as getting to use and enjoy our beautiful facility in Ferndale WA. I like working in our woodshop and helping out on the production floor if I am not in the office creating orders and answering customer phone calls and emails. Our focus at Fastcap on lean principles and leadership has also changed my life for the better and has lead to me enjoying my job immensely because we have eliminated so much waste and struggle from work which leaves me free to focus on the fun and challenge of keeping our customers happy. I think Fastcap rocks! I have a bachelor’s degree in Economics from WSU. I enjoy reading, cooking, all our parks and outdoor activities and spending time with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving comes early for the FastCap Crew! We have much to be thankful for!

A Note from Paul to the FastCap Team

Hi FastCap Team,

I know many of you think I’m crazy and that it is impossible for each one of you to do twice as much, or double your productivity, but I promise you it’s not only possible, it’s easy. The best part is it does not mean that you’re going to have to work harder, but you will actually work with more ease, enjoyment, and satisfaction in the way you do your job.

– First step is you must fully understand the amount of waste that surrounds each one of us.

– Second step is you must apply lean principles to everything you do & every breath you take.

– Third step is each one of you must set a big hairy audacious goal … a seemingly impossible goal like doubling your productivity by March 1, 2017….

Thanks
Paul
