PPG Offering Lean Training in Three States

PPG’s MVP Business Solutions team is offering three chances to attend its “MVP Green Belt” training sessions for collision center owners and managers this fall. The four-day course teaches the practical application of Lean Six Sigma tailored for collision repair and focuses on helping shop owners and managers design and implement processes that will result in the improvement of quality, speed and cost of operations.
The 2008 fall schedule for MVP Green Belt Training is as follows:

  • October 6-9, Albuquerque, N.M.
  • November 17-20, Syracuse, N.Y.
  • December 8-12, Duarte, Calif.

“The challenges for owners and managers of collision repair businesses have never been greater,” said Jim Berkey, director of MVP Business Solutions for PPG Automotive Refinish. “Collision repair businesses are faced with shrinking repair opportunities, shrinking profits, fewer capable people and performance pressures from insurers and consumers. On top of this, there is an over-supply of collision centers in the market. Our Green Belt Training is the right solution for these challenging times because it teaches owners and managers how to eliminate waste, improve cycle time and efficiencies, while reducing operating costs.”

Rich Altieri, senior manager, MVP Business Solutions, said the training curriculum is based on over four years of research and development, led by a team of Master Black Belt Lean Six Sigma experts and MVP collision center consultants.

“We hold these training programs at real-world collision centers that are well along their way on the Lean Six Sigma journey,” says Altieri. “That way, other owners and managers can more effectively relate what they learned in the classroom to how it applies on the shop floor.”
