GRI has broken ground for a new mixing plant in Sri Lanka on July 18. The company was allotted several acres of industrial lad for the establishment of this plant by the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka in the Mirigama Export Processing Zone (MEPZ). MEPZ is located in western Sri Lanka near the country’s capital city of Colombo.
The new mixing plant will have the capability to increase GRI’s production of specialty tires by 100 tons a day in the initial stages and once the final stage of the plant is completed, it is expected that the output of the plant will reach 200 tons a day.
GRI was established in 2002, with the goal of becoming a leading manufacturer of specialty tires in the world and the company has grown rapidly in the past 17 years. Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Prabhash Subasinghe Managing Director GRI, said that he was witnessing the realization of a dream as the facility would be one of the largest Mixing Plants in Sri Lanka, and would support the company’s Speciality Tire Manufacturing Facility.
The new mixing plant will be equipped with the latest automatic material weighing equipment, feeding systems and high capacity Banbury mixers. To protect the environment, all filler (power) material will be fed to the Banbury mixer using fully-enclosed material feeding systems with stringent controls on material weighing and recipe controls. The plant will be operated by highly experienced mixing experts who are familiar with the latest techniques and technologies, to ensure high quality mixing and optimum output. GRI would take steps to ensure that the output from this Mixing Plant, will be of consistently high quality, by sourcing machinery from global leaders.
GRI is one of the leading players in the Specialty Tires segment with offices in six countries and sales in over 50 countries across the world. The company specializes in the production of high-performance Agriculture, Construction and Material Handling Tires.
