Mr. Giorgio Gramegna, Director of Europe at GRI said, “The acquisition of ATRA is a strategic move by GRI. This significantly strengthens our business in Hungary for all our key products. Hungary is also ideally located in Europe between Western and Eastern Europe. It brings us closer to all our customers in neighboring countries and has the potential to be a noteworthy logistics and operational hub in the region.
“We are truly honoured to serve our customers in Hungary. Expanding our footprint across Europe is a key strategic thrust for GRI, as we see immense potential to provide superior services in the continent and secure a significant market opportunity. GRI is already located in Germany, Spain, France, Netherlands, and the Baltics; and now we are in Hungary as well,” stated Dr Mahesha Ranasoma, CEO of GRI
Mr. Prabhash Subasinghe, Managing Director of GRI said “Acquiring ATRA was an easy choice, as it services all the categories of GRI specialty tires, and it has maintained an impressive heritage of customer service, professionalism, and sustained business growth consistently increasing its market share. We are delighted to welcome ATRA into the GRI family as we look forward to unlocking greater synergies in the Hungarian market. I thank all stakeholders who worked tirelessly to make this acquisition a success.”
Mr. Tibor Somos, founder, and Managing Director of ATRA added further “We are delighted to be part of GRI’s global network. I founded ATRA with the aim of providing excellent service and high-quality tires to all of Hungary, and I am happy to have expanded the business over the past 30 years to greatly achieve that ambition. We have built a solid business that has earned the respect of our customers, owing to the commitment and dedication of our staff, the quality-of-service, and products we offer. Under GRI’s new ownership as well as leadership, I am confident that ATRA will scale to even greater heights.”
