Sherwin-Williams Hosting A-Plus University EcoLean Workshop in Chicago

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes announced the next A-Plus EcoLean Level 1 workshop will be held March 13-14 at the Double Tree Hotel in the Chicago metro area in Oak Brook, Ill.

Sherwin-Williams says its EcoLean Level 1 workshops are designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities. The program is offered to collision center owners and dealer managers from across the United States and Canada.

"We aim to give our EcoLean 1 workshop attendees an extensive and comprehensive look of how they can build a lean culture in their shop from the ground up," says Troy Neuerburg, manager of Marketing Business Services at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. "This curriculum was developed specifically with collision shop operators in mind. Through it they will learn practical processes and useful tips on lean production’s application in collision repair and methods to make their collision shops more efficient, productive, and subsequently more profitable."

Neuerburg says the program also seeks to educate shop owners about the fact that environmentally sound business decisions go hand-in-hand with reduction of excessive and duplicative procedure 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
