GRI Opens U.S. Office in North Carolina

Sept. 12, 2022

Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) has opened a corporate office in the United States. The office is located at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina for ease of access to the company's growing customer base.

"As we rapidly expand our specialty tire business across the U.S., we realized that a corporate office with experienced staff to cater to the growing needs of our customer base had now become vital." says Prabhash Subasinghe, managing director, GRI 

"Careful thought went in to selecting the ideal location, since it needed to hold commercial significance, complement our growth agenda, attract best in class talent and most importantly, provide excellent accessibility for our customers to reach us. The U.S. East Coast and Research Triangle Park were therefore the natural choice, since it is located at the center of three prominent cities in North Carolina, namely Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, with the additional benefit of it hosting the RDU International Airport nearby.

"The rich culture and history the location enjoys also influenced us in our selection. We are happy to now invite our customers to enjoy our services at this prestigious location and look forward to establishing even stronger bonds with them.

"As a result of operating its corporate office through this prestigious and strategic address, GRI’s U.S. team will be positioned to serve their customers even better, taking full command over sales operations, customer support, and logistics, while nurturing closer interactions with them. It will also provide greater opportunity for GRI to cater to and develop products specifically focused on the North American market, driving both business growth and enhanced customer satisfaction in the United States."

This past July, GRI completed the second phase of a $100 million capacity upgrade of its specialty tire plant in Sri Lanka.
