Virtual Event



Join AME and host Paul Akers for the next highly rated 2 Second Lean tour series!

See how SnapCab does lean in this 2 Second Lean tour! Learn how a 35 year-old company creating architectural products has focused on caring and fostering a fear-free culture that rewards mistakes and provides members at all levels with opportunities to continually improve by developing processes, building systems and creating order. Meet a company that truly lives its values!

This event is part of AME's 2 Second Lean Tour series hosted by Paul Akers, author of the book "2 Second Lean" and owner of FastCap.


For more than 35 years, SnapCab Company has been a leader in developing architectural products that are flexible, high quality, and safe to use in a variety of environments (workspaces and elevators). Founded by Glenn Bostock, a craftsman who specialized in cabinetry, SnapCab revolutionized the elevator industry by developing its patented interlocking paneling system (ILP), which not only makes its products simple to install, but also ensures they last a very, very long time. The ILP system also inspired the development of SnapCab pods, which evolved into what we now call SnapCab workspace. SnapCab intends to create space for communities of use for both its customers, and within its organization. The company values are "be kind, be authentic and create order" - beliefs that each team member strives to achieve every day. www.snapcab.com

Glenn Bostock, the founder and CEO of SnapCab, has realized that focusing on profit first may actually lead people away from the fulfillment they’re looking for. Through growing up with learning disabilities, and later building his award-winning, multimillion-dollar office pod and elevator interior business for close to four decades, Glenn has learned that focusing on caring first will undoubtedly grow a community of coworkers who enjoy working together, customers who want to see the company succeed, and a feeling of satisfaction that you’re doing something that is of service to the world, all while making a profit.
