About Us

Ocapt Business Books is an online bookstore that specializes in books, DVDs and other related products on “Lean”.   Established in 1989 in association with the Ontario Centre for Auto Parts Technology (hence the Ocapt), we have been spreading the lean word for almost 25 years. 

Sole supplier for the Lean Enterprise Institute in Canada, Ocapt carries Productivity Press titles as well as the best of Lean from many other publishers.

We welcome feedback of all kinds, especially on the value of particular books to your industry or purposes, so that we can continually improve the knowledge base of the site.

Ocapt supports several book clubs by stocking titles on their list. Anything you can’t find on the site, we are happy to track down for you.

We take pride in our customer service, so please feel free to let us know how we are doing.
