GRI Receives US DOT Certification For Safety

GRI tires will now incorporate the DOT code emboss on its side walls.

GRI has achieved another milestone by ensuring that its tires which will be used on highways in the US are produced per the stringent technical requirements mandated by the US Department of Traffic (DOT). As a result of this, GRI tires will now incorporate the DOT code emboss on its side walls.

The certification, which is issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) agency of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) is awarded to GRI’s manufacturing facilities in Sri Lanka. It therefore means that all GRI products relating to multiple specialty tire categories, which are produced in the accredited GRI manufacturing facilities, are tested as per DOT requirements and comply with the applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) of the US.

“GRI is a globally trusted brand and we have been able to maintain that position for nearly two decades, owing to the stand we have taken to never compromise on quality and technology,” said Michael Connor, director of sales for GRI USA. “As a responsible corporate citizen, we believe it is our duty to establish design specifications, manufacturing process specifications, quality assurance programs, and engineering change verification programs to a level that ensures that all new tires shipped to the United States, or any destination for that matter, meet or exceed the minimum performance requirements of all applicable safety standards. We are therefore happy to have received this certification in recognition of the work we have always carried out to ensure safety standards are met. We take this opportunity to thank the US Department of Transportation for all the support rendered to receive this certification.”
