GRI opens Sri Lanka off-road tyre plant
With the opening of its new, US$40 million factory in Badalgama, Sri Lanka, Global Rubber Industries Ltd. (GRI) has increased off-road tyre capacity and has added to its export portfolio. The facility was officially inaugurated on 25 January.
The new factory is located adjacent to the company’s solid tyre factory in Badalgama, and has been opened after a year’s construction work. Groundbreaking at the site took place on 4 January 2017.
The facility specialises in the production of pneumatic off-road tyres, and agricultural products will account for some 70 per cent of plant output. Construction, forklift and other OTR tyres will also be produced there.
