The A-Plus EcoLean Lavel 1 workshop, set for April 13-14 in Houston, is open to collision center owners and dealer managers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Participants will learn about lean processes and ways to make their shops more efficient, productive and profitable.

“Our EcoLean workshop curriculum is developed with collision shop operators in mind,” said Steven Feltovich, manager of business consulting services for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “We aim to give them a comprehensive look of how they can build a lean culture in their shop from the ground up.”

He said the program also seeks to teach shop owners how environmentally sound business decisions are tied to the reduction of waste and redundant, excessive procedures.
