June 5, 2012—Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes on Tuesday announced its next A-Plus EcoLean Level 1 workshop will be held July 25-26 at the Double Tree by Hilton in Anaheim, Calif.
Sherwin-Williams said its EcoLean Level 1 workshop is meant for collision repair center owners and dealer managers throughout the U.S. and Canada. The workshops are designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities. Sherwin-Williams said the program also educates shop owners on how environmentally sound business decisions correlate with the reduction of excessive and duplicative procedures and environmental waste.
The EcoLean Level 1 workshop curriculum includes the following course topics:
• The principles of reducing environmental waste
• The history of lean production and its practical application in collision repair
• Methods of making the collision facility more efficient and consistent
• How to build a lean culture from the ground up
“This curriculum was developed specifically with collision shop operators in mind. Through it they will learn practical processes and useful tips on lean production application in collision repair and methods to make their collision shops more efficient, productive, and subsequently, more profitable,” said Troy Neuerburg, manager of marketing business services for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “We aim to give our EcoLean 1 workshop attendees an extensive and comprehensive look at how they can build a lean culture in their shop from the ground up. Attendees will leave the two-day event with tangible tools to immediately increase the quality and production output of their businesses.”
