Kjell Van Zoen

Kjell van Zoen is a lean business consultant focused on small manufacturers.

Through a combination of studying the lean principles developed by Taiichi Ohno of Toyota, and using his own manufacturing business as a living lab, Kjell gained a unique perspective on how lean works within a small (less than 50 employee) business. He also used lean to forward the company’s eco-conscious business practices, and gave over 200 local government & business leaders, and other interested parties “lean and green” tours of Plywerk.

He teaches lean at PCC, is a brand ambassador for Portland Made, and regular speaker about lean, green and local manufacturing.
