Located at the Long Hau Industrial Park in Long Hau Commune, Can Giuoc District, the six-story facility covers some 20,000 square meters of land, with each factory built on 100 to 3,300 square meters.

Tran Hong Son, general director of Long Hau JSC, said that the launch of the high-rise factory cluster marked a new development step for not only the firm, but also the province, helping optimize the land fund and create added value for those enterprises which have been investing in the Long Hau Industrial Park.

The new high-rise facility is expected to contribute to the growth of supporting hi-tech industries.

Eight domestic and foreign investors have registered to rent some 70% of space in the cluster for their operations. Most of them are involved in manufacturing supporting industry and hi-tech products.

Son said that rents charged for factories at the high-rise cluster is 10%-15% lower than at low-rise factories.

Aside from handing over the factories, with a full-fledged infrastructure system, Long Hau JSC will also offer a series of services to support firms during their operations at the factories.

With the rising demand for factories, Long Hau expects the cluster to be filled within the next three months.

The high-rise factory cluster is about 20 kilometers from the Saigon Hi-Tech Park, smoothing the path for supporting industry firms to become suppliers for major enterprises at the HCMC-based hi-tech park.

Long Hau is planning to develop the second phase of the high-rise factory project next year, increasing its area to some 45,000 square meters.

The Mekong Delta province of Long An has become the second locality nationwide to put a high-rise rental factory cluster into operation, after HCMC.
