Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has announced that the next A-Plus EcoLean Level 1 workshop will be held July 25-26, 2012 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Anaheim Orange County, Calif.
Offered to collision center owners and dealer managers from across the U.S. and Canada, Sherwin-Williams’ EcoLean Level 1 workshops are designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities.
“This curriculum was developed specifically with collision shop operators in mind," says Troy Neuerburg, manager of marketing business services at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. "Through it, they’ll learn practical processes and useful tips on lean production and application in collision repair and methods to make their collision shops more efficient, productive and subsequently more profitable. 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.”
The program also educates shop owners on how environmentally sound business decisions go hand-in-hand with reduction of excessive and duplicative procedures and environmental waste.
“Attendees will leave the two-day event with tangible tools to immediately increase the quality and production output of their businesses,” Neuerburg adds.
In particular, the EcoLean 1 workshop curriculum includes:
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
