NRS International Rohingya refugee camp - Rex Hall mobile storage unit

Rex Hall MSU miniature on display

Together with our subsidiaries NRS Relief, Moon Netting and our Pakistan-based manufacturing arm, H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons, we will showcase our full range of fit-for-purpose relief products on stand F13.

Come and see an impressive miniature model of our Rex Hall Mobile Storage Unit (MSU), the king of our tent structure range. Since its market launch in 2016, this product has achieved significant growth and we have further developed it to integrate solar solutions. To date, we have supplied 600 MSUs to 22 countries.

Introducing LegendMEDI innovation

Designed in response to the Ebola epidemic in 2014, our latest shelter innovation, LegendMEDI, is a medical tent (MSF Standard) that can be deployed in cases of hemorrhagic fever outbreaks, such as Ebola and Lassa. Meet our colleague Frank Merks, Product Manager – Tent Structures, who will discuss with you the development concept and key features of this breakthrough product.

Sustainable business practice through #TentTotes project

Recognizing the need for companies to adopt sustainable business practices, we strongly embrace Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12: Responsible Consumption and Production. Learn more about our #TentTotes initiative, a non-profit upcycling project that promotes sustainable humanitarian supply chain while raising awareness to things that matter. The #TentTotes are durable and fashionable tote bags that are made from NRS Relief’s ‘upcycled’ refugee tent materials, repurposing the leftovers from shelter production at our factory in Pakistan.
