kaizen properties Sdn. Bhd.


Kaizen Holdings Sdn Bhd (835765-K) was founded in August 1996 in Ipoh.

The company launched its maiden project Taman Bukit Emas that year, initially under the umbrella of the Kinta Properties Group and later absorbing it into the Kaizen stable in 2008.

Taman Bukit Emas is a 32-acre project along  the Alor Gajah-Melaka-Jasin (AMJ) Expressway, sitting only 10km from Cheng and a mere 20 minute drive from Melaka Central. The project comprises 6 commercial shop offices and 337 units of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses.

A second project in Taman Cheng Setia comprising 24 units of Double Storey Semi-detached houses and 36 units of Double Storey Terrace houses is expected to be launched in January 2012.

Back home in Ipoh, Kaizen introduced itself with the launch of Dorset Place in February 2011, a project undertaken in partnership with well-established individuals in Ipoh. Phase One of Dorset Place sees the construction of 40 units of double storey 20’x70’ shop offices along the main trunk road between Jalan Gopeng and Jalan Pasir Puteh near SMJK Shen Chai.

The first residential phase of Dorset place was launched recently in December 2011, offering 34 units of Double Storey Terrace houses and 34 units of Double Storey Semi-detached houses within a well-planned gated and guarded community. The balance 76 units of residential homes will be launched in phases after this.

Meanwhile in May 2011, Kaizen also launched Somerset at Thompson (Impiana Flora), an exclusive gated and guarded community project comprising 18 exclusive semi-detached homes. Somerset at Thompson sits in the premier residential area of Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah (Tiger Lane).

Collectively, Kaizen’s current projects in hand reflect a Gross Development Value (GDV) of more than RM150 million.


Kaizen is led by Dr Tan Chin Yong, who brings with him an impressive and commendable track record in the property sector.

As chief executive officer of the Kinta Properties Group from 2000 to 2008, Dr Tan worked hand-in-hand with the owner (his father-in-law), the late Dato’ K K Lim, leading the Kinta Properties Group to become one of Ipoh’s largest property developers with the successful development of illustrious projects including Bandar Baru Sri Klebang, Meru Valley Resort, Halaman Meru Impian, Sri Iskandar Technology Park, and the Tambun Business Park.

Dr Tan played a pivotal role in the introduction of market leading concepts, designs and management ideas to the group, culminating in the winning of the coveted “CNBC Asia Pacific Property Awards” under the “Best Golf Development Malaysia” category for its Meru Valley Resort development in 2008.

Also driving Kaizen is executive director Mr. Tan Seng Leong, who brings with him more than 20 years of experience in property development, project management and implementation into the Kaizen Group. Seng Leong was formerly the General Manager of Kinta Properties Group, in charge of Bandar Baru Sri Klebang, a 650 acre mixed development near Chemor, Ipoh. Prior to that, Seng Leong was project manager for the Lion Group, which is well-known for its development of Ipoh Parade Shopping Center and other commercial complexes.

Kaizen has an exclusive sales and marketing partnership with PWPN Properties Sdn Bhd for its Dorset Place and Somerset projects. PWPN Properties is headed by Ms Stephanie Heng, formerly the sales and marketing manager of the Kinta Properties Group.

Meanwhile, Ms Ann Yap, a UK certified quantity surveyor, heads the sales and project administration department; while Mr Lim Thye Kok manages the group’s projects in Melaka, backed by more than 20 years experience with Gombak Land Sdn Bhd.
