Located in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), the WHA Rayong 36 industrial estate is getting ready to welcome its first high-profile investors, especially in S-curve industries including Next Generation Automotive, Robotics and Aviation, Electronics and Logistics, and others.

Like all other WHA industrial estates in the country, WHA Rayong 36 is linked to WHA’s Unified Operations Center (UOC), located at its headquarters at WHA Tower in Bangna, enabling real-time monitoring of several environmental parameters, such as air quality, industrial water and wastewater quality, as well as rainfall levels, traffic management and safety.

As a Smart Eco Industrial Estate, WHA Rayong 36 will enable customers to lower their operating and logistics costs, and streamline the timely process of getting their materials from their supply sources and their finished products to their final destinations.
