Gary Stevens has been named president of material handling tires in the United States for Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI).

Stevens has been with the Sri Lanka-based tire manufacturer for more than 14 years and has been "instrumental" in growing its material handling tire business in the U.S., according to the company.

In his new role, Stevens will lead GRI’s efforts to take its sales, distribution and dealer network in the U.S. to the next level. He will report to Managing Director Prabhash Subasinghe.

“Having witnessed the strong relationships and the customer network that Gary has built over the years, and the way he has developed our business, I am confident that he will continue that same momentum as we launch new material handling tires and expand into new territories in the U.S.,” says Subasinghe.

Earlier this year, GRI opened a $40 million tire manufacturing plant in Sri Lanka. For more information on GRI, check out these links:
