Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) is prepared to bring on stream in January the radial agricultural and construction tire plant it is building in Badalgama, north of Colombo. Located next to its existing solid industrial tire factory, GRI broke ground on the $40 million facility in late 2016.
The 1.25 million sq.-ft. plant will have 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.
All the products made at the new plant will be destined for export, the company said.
