GRI Invests $25 Million in Mixing Plant
Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) is investing $25 million in its mixing plant as part of an overall effort to boost the company's manufacturing capacity.
The plant - which is based in Sri Lanka - will feature six mixing lines, two of which are up and running.
"We have introduced a state-of-the-art production system to this plant with high-tech machinery from Germany that will be used for mixing and milling," says Ananda Caldera, GRI's executive director.
"Furthermore, we are also using a fully automated powder feeding system for carbon black so that no dust particles are released into the atmosphere."
Installation of other mixing lines are in progress, with completion planned for mid-2022.
"As we increase our tire manufacturing capacity, we will also be gearing up the mixing capacity for both solid and pneumatic tires," notes Caldera.
