And, we are delighted and proud to inform you the shop earned the coveted Colas 6S Shop Certification – Silver Level. Only nine (two – Silver and seven – Bronze) of the fifty-two shops throughout Colas Inc. have earned this recognition.

Tony Shafer and his team have worked diligently toward the 6S of  Safety, Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.

The Shop Team consisting of Gary, John, Gary, Levi, Charles, Daniel, Tony, and not pictured above Kevin and Craig maintained and improved the following initiatives (from their efforts a year ago to earn the Bronze level):

  • Obsolete parts (Sort)
  • Overstock/Left over parts (Sort)
