Favorite place to show off:

Our Gemba Room is a meeting room right off the production floor that overlooks the production lines. We like to take visitors there because not only is it exciting to show visitors the lines in motion, it’s an opportunity to speak with customers about  what we do and what we’re good at in a relaxed environment.

Note:  The name refers to  “Gemba Kaizen,”  a Japanese concept of continuous improvement designed for enhancing processes and reducing waste. Within a lean context, Gemba simply refers to the location where value is created, while Kaizen relates to improvements.
