Global Rubber Industries Pvt Ltd (GRI) celebrated the first anniversary of its world class specialty tyre manufacturing facility in Sri Lanka on January 25, 2019.
GRI’s factory comprises approximately 70% of agriculture tyre products and the remaining output consists of pneumatic construction tyres and forklift tyres.
“GRI is now well-positioned to cater to the farming needs of the global agriculture industry with a large range of high-quality radials and bias tyres. In addition to the number of sizes, the quality and dependability of GRIs specialty tyre range has been highly commended by the marketplace,” says Prabhash Subasinghe, Managing Director of GRI.
Since the opening of the specialty tyre manufacturing factory, GRI implemented the strategy of increased automation, via the utilization of leading edge and modernistic manufacturing units. This has increased the degree of precision, with enhanced consistency in quality, shorter cycle times, increased efficiency, reduced waste and increased safety.
Some of the recently attained machines, that are the first of their kind to be commissioned in Sri Lanka, are the Marangoni Tire Building Machine, the Tire Endurance Tester, the Plunger Tester, and several other high-end machines, GRI says in a Press release.
