COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Specialty tire manufacturer Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. has reached two milestones, celebrating the one-year anniversary of the commissioning of its specialty tire plant in Colombo as well as the release of 100 unique tire sizes during that period.
The pneumatic tire factory, which opened Jan. 25 of last year, produces mostly agricultural tires (70 percent) in addition to construction and forklift tires.
In the next few months, GRI plans to open a rubber-mixing plant, which will result in a significant capacity increase, the company said.
GRI Managing Director Prabhash Subasinghe said his company is "well positioned to cater to the farming needs of the global agriculture industry with a large range of high-quality radials and bias tires."
