GRI To Provide Tires for Kion Forklifts
After two years of testing, Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) will outfit Kion Group forklifts with its Ultimate XT tires.
“We have great admiration for Kion and are privileged to have GRI’s premium plus tires fitted on Kion brands OEM forklifts," said Prabhash Subasinghe, managing director of GRI. "This partnership testifies to the excellence of GRI’s tires, their high-performance in varying conditions and the company’s commitment to develop superior forklift tires. We are excited about the possibilities ahead in our partnership with Kion."
Kion is the largest manufacturer of forklifts and warehouse equipment in Europe, and provides supply chain solutions to more than 100 countries around the globe.
GRI says its Ultimate XT premium plus tire is suited for demanding conditions, with a tread pattern that provides traction and stability. The tire’s special compounds reduce heat build-up and offer higher run-time and lower rolling resistance for 24-hour material handling operations. The tires are resistant to abrasions while providing comfort and safety for users. The high tread volume, greater lug depth and optimized aspect ratio provide extensive tire life.
Mahesha Ranasoma, CEO of GRI, said that “We deliver high-grade specialty tires that are built sustainably using pure natural rubber at our advanced production plants in Sri Lanka.”
