Sherwin-Williams to Host Lean Workshop
April 21, 2017—Sherwin-Williams will hold its next EcoLean Level 1 workshop on location at Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship teams Joe Gibbs Racing and Roush Fenway Racing in Charlotte, N.C., June 20-21, 2017.
Collision center owners and managers will receive training from business consultants in the industry and discuss lean principals that aim to improve workflow, communication and productivity. This special Charlotte session will also feature unique behind-the-scenes tours and discussion with team members from two leading race teams of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
“Our attendees will be able to learn lean principles while engaging with our business consultants. We aim to give our EcoLean workshop attendees an extensive and comprehensive look at how they can create a lean environment in their own facility,” said Lee Rush, manager of business development at Sherwin-Williams. “This is a particularly special and rare opportunity for many. We have heard great response from shop management about the positive impact to their net profit; some have increased up to 30 percent.”
In addition to the race team facility tours, the Charlotte EcoLean Level 1 workshop curriculum will include:
- An overview of lean production, and its practical application in collision repair
- Approaches to making a collision facility more efficient and predictable
- Roundtable discussion for overcoming lean implementation challenges
