Sherwin-Williams Hosting EcoLean Workshop in Las Vegas

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corporation (SWAFC) announced it will hold a second A-Plus University EcoLean workshop at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, June 9-10, 2009.

The EcoLean workshop has been developed for collision shop owners and managers who are interested in leveraging the power of lean production as well as business solutions that reduce environmental waste. The inaugural EcoLean workshop was recently held in Los Angeles.

“The EcoLean program included extensive training workshops, consulting services and an invaluable practical shop assessment guide,” said Marsh Gluchow, owner and CEO, Valley Motor Center, Van Nuys, Calif. “The assessment included tools to generate measurable energy reductions using innovative products and equipment solutions and enables a collision center to identify areas of greatest environmental waste, how to build a waste reduction plan and track the results.”
 
The program combines lean production and green business solutions and allows collision repair shops to take advantage of these two disciplines through a sustainable program to drive profitability through the reduction of waste.

EcoLean was built around an idea that SWAFC calls P3, designed to help body shops improve their Productivity and Profitability, while reducing the environmental impact on our Planet, according to Rodes Brown, SWAFC manager – Marketing Strategic Programs.
