GRI supplying trailer manufacturer Joskin
GRI is supplying tyres to Joskin, the agricultural Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) based in Belgium. Announcing the news at the end of October, Joskin said it has been in operation since 1968 and is one of the world’s leading producers of agricultural trailers, tankers, and related equipment to meet the changing needs of global farmers.
“For Joskin, quality, price, reputation of the supplier, and the service of the distributor are key factors in choosing partners. The combination of strengths of our distributor Agrityre, and GRI proved to be elements for a strong partnership and it will pave the way for further exciting collaboration with Joskin in the future,” Kurt Verbrugge, sales director – Europe, GRI.
GRI is supplying its Green EX FL700 heavy duty floatation tyre for Joskin slurry tankers. This specially designed tyre is constructed to carry heavy loads and performs well under harsh conditions. Its wide tread design and heavy load capacity at low inflation pressure provide for increased balance and reduced soil compaction. The tyre’s reinforced sidewall protects against impacts, resulting in extended tyre life and reliability. GRI’s Green Ex tyres are fitted in customised rims by Agrityre and supplied to Joskin.
“The Joskin international group and its products are well-known among Europe’s agricultural sector and across 60 countries around the world. GRI constantly emphasizes quality and excellence in its range of products and is on a journey to take Sri Lanka to the world. It is an honour for a Sri Lankan-manufactured specialty tyre by GRI to be fitted on a Joskin trailer,” commented Dr Mahesha Ranasoma, CEO of GRI.
The Joskin Group specializes in agricultural transportation and spreading and is in the process of building the world’s largest program of trailers for transport and spreading of agricultural products.
GRI produces radial agriculture tyres, construction tyres, and material handling solid tires and has offices in nine countries, with sales in over fifty countries. GRI’s production plant is the largest to produce high-grade specialty tyres and the first to produce radial agriculture tyres in Sri Lanka.
