This special session, which will take place June 28-29, 2016, will feature extensive teachings on the benefit and execution of lean principles, along with behind-the-scenes tours and discussion with team members from two of NASCAR’s leading race teams.

While at Joe Gibbs Racing and Roush Fenway Racing, collision center owners and managers from across the U.S. and Canada will receive training from some of the best collision services business consultants in the industry. They’ll see firsthand how an organization can embrace lean philosophies and implementation to greatly assist in its workflow, communication and increased productivity.

“We aim to give our EcoLean Workshop attendees an extensive and comprehensive look at how they can create a lean environment in their own facility,” said Greg Eisenhardt, Sherwin-Williams marketing manager. “This is a particularly special and rare opportunity for many collision repair experts. Our attendees will be able to learn lean principles while engaging with our business consultants and some of the motorsport industry’s leading professionals.

“The EcoLean program was first introduced more than five years ago and since then, each workshop session has been incredibly popular. We have had great response from customers about the positive impact to their net profit, some upwards of almost 30 percent.”

The EcoLean Level 1 Workshops from Sherwin-Williams are offered to collision center owners and dealership managers from across the U.S. and Canada. They are designed to educate attendees on how to maximize profitability by improving production and eliminate waste throughout their facilities.

In addition to the race team facility tours, the Charlotte EcoLean Level 1 workshop curriculum will include:
