A new mixing plant in Sri Lanka is in the works for the specialty tire manufacturer, GRI.
Work is currently underway for the new mixing facility in the Mirigama Export Processing Zone in Sri Lanka. The new mixing facility will be equipped with a capacity to produce 200 tons per day.
“We opted for a new mixing plant to meet the current demand and facilitate further expansion. We are in the process of ramping up our tire production and gradually increasing capacity to better serve our customers worldwide,” said Ananda Caldera, executive director of GRI.
The company says its latest mixing facility will be equipped with “best-in-class equipment” and “state-of-the-art automatic weighing equipment to ensure accuracy and quality.”
GRI says the plant features feeding systems and high-capacity mixers. The auto-feeding of fillers ensure there is no dust generated by carbon black. With silo systems and dust collection mechanisms at every stage, the production process at the facility ensures that there is no wastage or by-products as any dust collected is re-used, GRI says.
