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.
