While at Joe Gibbs Racing and Roush Fenway Racing, collision center owners and managers from across the United States and Canada will receive training from some of the best collision services business consultants in the industry and see first-hand how an organization can embrace lean principals to greatly assist in its workflow, communication and increased productivity.  This special Charlotte session will also feature unique behind-the-scene tours and discussion with team members from two leading race teams of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

We have heard great response from shop management about the positive impact to their net profit; some have increased up to 30%.”
