BASF to Host Launching Lean Interactive Workshop

BASF will host “Launching Lean,” a two-day interactive workshop for collision center employees and managersin Salt Lake City, Utah, on November 9 and 10. The workshop will deliver the fundamental concepts and tools needed to successfully implement Lean in a collision repair center.

Lean, part of BASF’s Vision Plus University, offers students the basic control methods necessary to eliminate waste, and to improve cycle times and efficiencies, while reducing operating costs. The Lean course is BASF's first step in implementing a continuing improvement business model and serves as a prerequisite for future workshops.

“We are proud to offer our valued collision center partners the Lean program,” said Amjad Farah, Business Development Manager for BASF Automotive Refinish. “When body shop owners apply the knowledge learned from the courses they can gain a solid competitive edge in the marketplace to grow sales and streamline their operations.”
