Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) officially opened its specialty tire manufacturing plant in Badalgama, Sri Lanka on Jan. 25, 2018. Located next to its solid industrial tire factory, GRI broke ground on the $40 million facility in January 2017.

The 1.25 million sq.-ft. plant has a rated capacity of 25 metric tons a day, making it the largest factory in Sri Lanka dedicated to making specialty tires and the first to produce radial agriculture tires, according to GRI. Ag tires will comprise approximately 70% of the state-of-the-art, highly automated plant’s production. The remaining output will consist of pneumatic construction tires and forklift tires.

All the products made at the new plant will be destined for export, the company said.
