Who we are
NRS International is a family-run company that manufactures and develops products for the humanitarian, public health and development sectors. Responding to the growing demands of vulnerable populations, we aim to improve the lives of people in need by providing innovative, high quality and cost-effective aid essentials. Headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, we are the parent company to two subsidiaries:
- NRS Relief offers core relief items, family tents, multi-purpose shelters and mobile storage units to the humanitarian sector. Through its innovative products that adhere to the highest international standards, aid organisations can effectively alleviate the suffering of people experiencing disasters and conflicts.
- TANA Netting manufactures high quality, WHOPES-recommended DawaPlus® 2.0 insecticide treated nets as a tool for malaria control and prevention.
Our approach to business – All under one roof
Over the past four decades, NRS International has developed an enviable product range designed specifically for the humanitarian, public health and development sectors. You can rest assured that whatever product we offer, it is fully compliant with the highest industry standards.
We manufacture what we sell
We fully control our supply chain and manage the entire product development process from manufacturing through to final delivery. Our core relief items and public health products are manufactured exclusively by H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS) in Pakistan, our factory that employs over 7,400 skilled workers. After leaving the factory, our expert logisticians facilitate the transportation of our products by air, sea and land to wherever they are required, and also maintain strategic stocks in Dubai and Lahore.
We never stand still
Innovation is in our blood. We work hand in hand with our clients, suppliers and beneficiaries in order to design new solutions and to continually improve our existing products. We are proud that we were the first supplier to offer affordable and fully fire retardant tents and tarpaulins to the humanitarian community, a truly life-saving innovation which won the Aid Innovation Challenge at AidEx 2014.
We are strongly committed to a corporate social responsibility agenda which focuses on our staff, our products and production. The Bilqees Sarwar Foundation, a non-profit, non-government organisation founded by NRS International’s chairing family, spearheads extensive charitable activities in Pakistan and beyond.
