May 21, 2012

May 21, 2012—Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes will hold its next A-Plus EcoLean Level 2 workshop June 20-21 at the Renaissance Hotel in Cleveland, the company announced Monday.

Sherwin-Williams said its EcoLean Level 2 workshop is designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities. The two-day course educates shop owners about the connection between environmentally sound business decisions and the reduction of process and environmental waste. Participants will obtain tools to increase the quality, production output and profitability of their businesses, Sherwin-Williams said.

Topics covered during the EcoLean Level 2 workshop include:

• Building an environmental management system
• Repair planning for rapid throughput
• Shop tour and lean roundtable
• Compensation solutions for a lean environment
• EcoLean marketing

“EcoLean is all about helping collision centers drive profitability and productivity, while reducing their environmental impact,” said Troy Neuerburg, marketing business services manager for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “The training is structured like a college curriculum.”

Neuerburg said the EcoLean Level 2 workshop is open to all collision facility owners and managers who have attended either Sherwin-Williams’ EcoLean Level 1 workshop or “Improving Workshop Efficiency” class. He said that previous training is necessary because  the EcoLean Level 1 and “Improving Workshop Efficiency” workshops provide foundational knowledge that is needed for Level 2.
