Association of 3 Co., Ltd.
Association of Three Co.,Ltd. is a manufacturer of equipment for the “environmental industries” (the Three in the company name are earth, air and water, not people!). Thepthai Udomchanya started this company in 1993 and has built it into a very successful organisation supplying equipment for water and wastewater treatment throughout Asia and beyond. We have an excellent staff and workforce, many of whom have been with the company almost 20 years, and we make equipment which is technically superior, developed by the expert knowledge of our staff. We have a flexible and very capable manufacturing team, so we can make each unit as you need it, to match your exact requirements. From 2004 we have expanded our field of activity into the “earth” part of Association – Solid Waste. This will also benefit our third environmental discipline, “air”.

Thailand has grown dramatically in the last twenty or thirty years which has led to problems with waste. We have undertaken research, product development and trial projects, and we have formed joint ventures with European machinery manufacturers to develop our products.
We have seen a prospect in turning undesired organic sludges into a high grade fertilizer. So, in 2004, with the support of DANIDA, we have participated in a Partnership Facility Program with Tim Envipro A/S, which is one of the leaders in Compost Machinery. Since then, we have been involved in the composting process and composting machinery. The result of this effort is that we now have a portfolio of excellent equipment which we manufacture in Bangkok to address our country’s needs.
We now manufacture a wide range of equipment for the various phases of waste handling. Our equipment is efficient and economical, and we think it will also be an attractive export. During the development of this part of our business we have worked on a variety of jobs for landfill reclamation and wood shredding, and we are now moving into the main work of addressing Thailand’s needs.
From our R&D work we have concluded that separating organic material from the waste stream and composting it is the most appropriate Thai solution. This process not only produces a valuable soil improvement material, but on the way also separates other valuable materials for recycling. We have now executed several of these projects at Krabi in the south, MaeSai and MaeSot in the north, as process contractors. Project Profiles for Krabi and Mae Sai are available.
During 2009 we are also developing with European partners a solid waste digestion facility at Korat. The large amount of waste we have to deal with at Korat justifies the complexity of this technology.
