GRI’s New $25M Mixing Plant to be Complete by Mid-2022

The mixing plant will employ sustainable practices and is a $25 million investment for the company.


With increasing global demand for specialty tires, GRI has continued to expand by increasing its manufacturing capacity. The work on GRI’s latest mixing plant in Mirigama, Sri Lanka, is progressing, and upon completion, it will have a capacity of 200 tons per day, according to GRI Executive Director Ananda Caldera.

The mixing plant is a $25 million investment and has a height of 100 feet. It will have six mixing lines, and so far, two lines are completed and operational, GRI says.

GRI said the other mixing lines are being installed with completion planned for mid-2022.

With an eye on sustainability, GRI’s focus is to prevent the release of any dust particles from the production process into the atmosphere at its new mixing plant. To do this, the company has installed an automatic weighing and feeding system so that employees don’t handle any powder material. Caldera said plans call for the installation of solar panels and for all machinery that uses motors and drives to run at variable speeds so that energy is used carefully and efficiently.


GRI produces specialty tires that are built using pure natural rubber in Sri Lanka. Founded in 2002, the company produces material handling solid tires, radial agriculture tires, and construction tires. GRI has operations in nine countries, and a business presence in over 50 countries.
