Introducing Sheikh H. Noor-ud-Din & Sons
From family tents to mosquito nets, we have built our unsurpassed product expertise for over 40 years. The driving force behind this success is H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS), our family-owned manufacturing facility in Lahore, Pakistan.
HSNDS adheres to sustainable and ethical business standards by fully controlling the supply chain and entire product development process from manufacturing through to final delivery. The factory uses the latest technology to manufacture ranges of products that meet the highest technical standards of international and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
Core relief items and refugee shelters
As one of the world’s leading tent and tarpaulin manufacturers, we never stop creating and we always strive to be the first to introduce new technological breakthroughs and advanced development efforts in the humanitarian field.
HSNDS manufactures the full innovative range of NRS Relief’s family tents and all core relief items such as tarpaulins, blankets, sleeping mats, winterisation kits, water containers and kitchen sets for the humanitarian sector. The factory also produces all our multi-purpose tents for medical, educational, logistic and management support use, as well as mobile storage units.
Long-lasting insecticidal nets
In 2015-2016, our subsidiary TANA Netting produced a staggering 48 million long-lasting insecticidal nets in our netting production units. The production of DawaPlus® nets benefits from the cutting, sewing and stitching techniques honed over the years by its sister company NRS Relief, the leading supplier of tents, blankets and tarpaulins to the humanitarian industry.
As part of our ongoing expansion we have established a solar product manufacturing unit, which will produce all Enlight household and commercial solar products. When designing our new factory, we began with a clean sheet of paper, embracing fresh thinking and new perspectives. This saw the very latest advances in solar technology, smart manufacturing and world class processes embedded in our factory operations.
Male latex condoms
By 2022, our fourth subsidiary Ulinzi Latex aims to become the world’s largest condom manufacturer by volume, with an annual production of 8 billion pieces. To achieve this mission, we ca’t be constrained by existing facilities – we need to start from the beginning and build up our production facilities (HSNDS Latex) in the way that will enable us to achieve our goals. We have invested in a large greenfield site with a total area of 300,000 square meters. In July 2016 we celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of the first stage of our factory’s construction, and production is expected to start by the end of 2017.
We have recently expanded our workforce employees to meet the increasing demands from our clients and partners worldwide.
On a monthly production capacity*, our skilled workers take pride in manufacturing up to:
- 20,000 family tents;
- 100 mobile storage units;
- 400,000 tarpaulins;
- 600,000 blankets;
- 100,000 water containers;
- 100,000 sleeping mats; and
