For GRI, Irish Eyes are Smiling Thanks to FIT

Posted on August 8, 2018

First Industrial Tyres Ltd. (FIT), with the help of supplier Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI), is expanding its operations in Dublin, Ireland.

FIT Ireland will be distributing GRI’s full line of material handling tires -- including GRI’s new Globestar WT (Wide Tread) -- to the Irish market as a premium solution provider. FIT and GRI have been partners in the United Kingdom for more than 10 years.

"I believe that a prosperous future is ahead of us, and together with GRI as our associate, we will strive to new heights," said Edward Woolley, managing director of FIT.

First Industrial Tyres was established by Woolley in May 2010 by Edward Woolley. With more than 30 years of experience in the industrial tire business, FIT has successfully and rapidly built a business with national coverage in the UK.

In 2018, Woolley saw an opportunity to expand his chain of depots with the closure of Forklift Tyre Specialists Dublin (FTS), founded in 1979 by Tom Watson; and it was with this ambition that FIT Ireland came into existence on 16th May 2018.

"FIT is a leading robust and quality-oriented company that provides exceptional customer satisfaction and unparalleled levels of service," said Prabhash Subasinghe, managing director of GRI. "We find that these values complement and are coherent with GRI’s values of purposeful action and relentless drive, coupled with a far-sighted approach."
