Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes announced that the next EcoLean Level 1 workshop will be held October 4-5, 2016, at the Omni La Mansion del Rio on the River Walk of San Antonio.
The EcoLean Level 1 workshops from Sherwin-Williams are offered to collision center owners and dealer managers from across the U.S. and Canada. They are designed to educate attendees on how to maximize profitability by improving production and eliminating waste throughout their facilities.
“We aim to give our EcoLean workshop attendees an extensive and comprehensive look at how they can build a lean culture in their shop from the ground up,” said Greg Eisenhardt, manager of Sales Force Effectiveness, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. The EcoLean curriculum was developed specifically with collision shop operators in mind. “We continue to sell out our EcoLean workshops as owners and managers are feeling more and more industry pressure every day. Their necessity to perform in both the front office and on the production floor continues to be a challenge. Those who take our training and deliberately implement the teachings have proven to be incredibly successful within their markets.”
