September 1, 2010—DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) has partnered with Marshall Auto Body in a joint effort toward educating DPC customers and repair shops about lean practices.

The agreement involves supplying refinish products and related supplies, and Marshall Auto Body will share its lean production-operating model they established nearly five years ago. Since then, Marshall Auto Body has seen reductions in cycle time, an increase in profitability and has plans to expand, according to Aaron Marshall, operations manager of Marshall Auto Body.

“DuPont Performance Coatings chose to partner with Marshall Auto Body due to the results achieved using their pull-based, lean production operating model,” said Steve Trapp, manager of collision services development.
