Who we are
NRS International is a family company offering fit-for-purpose relief products that make a difference to the lives of those in need. Responding to the growing global demand for humanitarian aid, we do business in a sustainable way, embracing the ‘doing good, doing well’ philosophy.
We develop and manufacture refugee shelter, core relief items, mobile storage units and long lasting-insecticidal nets. In 2016-2017 we sold 61 million products to United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations and government entities. We are an integral part of the humanitarian and global health supply chains and our essential products have improved the lives of 110 million beneficiaries in the past year alone.
We are the parent company to NRS Relief and TANA Netting and we are strategically located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), a global humanitarian hub. We manufacture what we sell in our modern production facility – H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons – in Lahore, Pakistan. We are ready to respond 24/7 and we pride ourselves in having multicultural and multilingual employees who are willing to go the extra mile when disaster strikes. We are committed to providing fit-for-purpose products and offer solutions that are driven by our clients’ needs. In addition, we perform field assessments and are passionate about logistics and quality management. By tapping into over 40 years of excellence in production, we are able to combine our strengths and be ready when the unexpected happens.

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.
To emphasize our sense of duty to conduct responsible business – especially as a supplier to the not-for-profit sector – we align our business objectives with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We invite you to learn more about our data-driven approach to sustainability, as well as the many community initiatives and charity projects that we run through the Bilqees Sarwar Foundation, which spearheads extensive charitable activities in Pakistan and beyond.
