Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes will hold its next A-Plus EcoLean Level 1 workshop Sept. 14-15, 2010 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 10 East Market, Indianapolis, Ind. The EcoLean Level 1 workshop is designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities.
The focus of the EcoLean program is two-fold, Sherwin-Williams says. Trained professionals share best practices for driving profitability and productivity while helping facilities reduce their overall environmental waste.
"We’re excited with the ongoing response to our EcoLean program," said Rodes Brown, manager marketing strategic programs for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. "We see the market moving rapidly toward leaner business models that include an emphasis on reducing environmental waste."
The upcoming EcoLean Level 1 workshop scheduled for Indianapolis is specifically developed to meet the needs of collision shop operators. Instructors will teach attendees about the history of lean production and how to build a lean culture from the ground up. Shop owners and managers will also be given useful tips on lean production’s practical application in collision repair, and methods to make collision shops more efficient.
The program also educates shop owners on the connection between environmentally sound business decisions and the reduction of process and environmental waste. Participants will leave the two-day event with tangible tools to increase the quality, production output and profitability of their businesses.
