GRI Wins Fitment with Ag Equipment Manufacturer
Global Rubber Industries (Pvt.) Ltd. (GRI) is now supplying ag tires to Joskin, an Belgium-based ag tire equipment manufacturer that specializes in trailers and tankers.
The GRI Green Ex FL700 heavy-duty flotation tire will be used on Joskin's slurry tankers.
"The specially designed tire is constructed to carry heavy loads and performs well under harsh conditions," say GRI officials. "Its wide tread design and heavy load capacity at low inflation pressure provide for increased balance and reduced soil compaction."
In addition, the tire's reinforced sidewall "protects against impacts, resulting in extended tire life and reliability."
Dr. Mahesha Ranasoma, GRI's CEO, says Joskin's "international group and its products are well-known among Europe's agricultural sector and across 60 countries around the world. It is an honor for a Sri Lankan-manufactured specialty tire by GRI to be fitted with a Joskin trailer."
"For Joskin, quality, price, reputation of the supplier and the service of the distributor are key factors in choosing partners," says Kurt Verbrugge, sales director, Europe, for GRI.
"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."
