With a view to expanding company business within the USA, tire maker GRI has opened a new corporate office facility in the Frontier RTP Building 600 at the Research Triangle Park (RTP) in North Carolina.
The facility will be used by the manufacturer for the development of products aimed specifically at the North American market, and also to improve logistics and sales operations within the country.
“As we rapidly expand our specialty tire business across the US, we realized that a corporate office with experienced staff to cater to the growing needs of our customer base had now become vital,” commented 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 US East Coast and RTP 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.”
