Sherwin-Williams Schedules EcoLean Level 2 Workshop in Chicago
July 7, 2017—Sherwin-Williams announced it will hold its next 2017 EcoLean Level 2 workshop on Aug. 29-30, 2017, at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center.
While there, the group will have the privilege of touring CARSTAR All Line Auto Body, one of the leading CARSTAR franchises in North America. This collision facility has completely implemented lean production principles and subsequently seen its production and profitability levels dramatically increase.
The EcoLean Level 2 workshop is an extensive, two-day course that further implements the Sherwin-Williams message by educating shop owners on the connection between environmentally sound business decisions and the reduction of process and environmental waste. It is exclusively designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity throughout their facilities.
“The best way to start to move the numbers is by scheduling efficiently, implementing damage analysis, blueprinting, and a predictable parts process. This is all discussed in our EcoLean Level 2 workshop that provides collision shop owners and managers with the tools to immediately help align their purpose, their people, and their process on the production floor,” says Lee V. Rush, Sherwin-Williams manager of business consulting services. He notes that EcoLean courses have been built by some of the best consultants in the industry, and will provide collision repair professionals the opportunity to relax in the company of their own peers while learning from one another over the two day period.
The EcoLean Level 2 workshop curriculum includes:
- Repair Planning for Rapid Throughput
- Damage Analysis/Blueprinting
- Parts Correctness
All class materials, lunch on both days and a group dinner are included in the workshop fee. Breakfast vouchers are included with hotel room reservation. Hotel and transportation costs are the responsibility of each attendee.
