Since 2007, Portland-based Plywerk has grown from a makeshift basement studio to a highly regarded photo mounting and art panel business. Owner Kjell van Zoen is also one of a growing number of local business people seeking to nurture a robust urban manufacturing economy in the Portland metro area.

Oregon Business spoke with van Zoen about bringing manufacturing back to the United States, lean manufacturing and the value of buying local.
