DUBLIN, Ireland — Specialty tire manufacturer Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) has bolstered its partnership with distributor First Industrial Tyres Ltd. (FIT), which will now be distributing GRI products in Ireland.
FIT Ireland, which was established in May after the closing of First Tyre Specialists Dublin, will be distributing GRI's full line of materials-handling tires to the Irish market. FIT has distributed GRI tires in the United Kingdom for more than 10 years.
GRI Managing Director Prabhash Subasinghe called FIT a "robust and quality-oriented company that provides exceptional customer satisfaction and unparalleled levels of service.
"We find that these values complement and are coherent with GRI's values of purposeful action and relentless drive, coupled with a far-sighted approach," Mr. Subasinghe said.
First Industrial Tyres was established in May 2010 by Edward Woolley, who is the managing director of FIT. He said he is looking forward to a "prosperous future" by distributing GRI tires.
FIT Ireland will be offering a range of GRI products for forklifts, including some of GRI's Globestar WT (wide tread) for the materials-handling industry.
