How to Maximize Throughput and Profit in Your Paint Department

Advancing technologies in automotive refinish products and the equipment available today positions collision centers for exceptional Refinishing Area Optimization. However, even with the exceptional refinish products and the best equipment available, throughput poses some unique challenges for today’s collision centers. The MVP Refinish Area Optimization class takes an in-depth look into the key areas that influence paint shop profitability in a negative way.  We then look at the practical solutions used by progressive collision centers to improve throughput performance and enable vehicles to flow smoothly through the production process. Participants will learn these foundational principles and how to address the key contributing factors that drain production efficiencies and squash profits in our Refinish areas.
