GLRPPR Sector Resource: Auto Body Shop Saves Money by Eliminating Solvent

Title:
Auto Body Shop Saves Money by Eliminating Solvent

Abstract:
912 Auto Center made a number of changes to their operations when they moved their location to Dorchester, MA. These changes were spurred by the owner's commitment to improving the quality of both his product and the working environment. The success he has experienced as a result of switching from primarily solvent-based painting and paint gun washing to a system that is primarily water-based has been significant. Operating costs are reduced, performance and productivity are improved and worker satisfaction is enhanced.
