The driving force behind AQM International Consulting is Jos Valkenburg (1956). First, he has built his career with renowned companies like Holco, Philips, and Hoogovens (now Tata Steel) over a period of 20 years. Since 1999, Jos has been working as an independent consultant and specialized in the manufacturing industry. He brings about a direct and good result in challenging projects at customers in automotive, metal-electro, mechanical engineering, aircraft assembly and food industry.

  • Creating standard times
  • Optimisation of workplace and work process
