Our History


The NSL Group incorporating Necessity Supplies Limited and Primecrown Limited, is a family-owned business, founded in 1986 by Ketan Mehta, and has been established as a pharmaceutical wholesaler for over 25 years. The company is involved in the importation of pharmaceutical products from the European Union and the exportation and wholesale distribution of pharmaceutical products to customers on a national and global level.

NSL Group began in a small unit in Hounslow, at which time it was run by only 2 people and had a portfolio of just 7 products. Today it is based in over 100,000sq ft. of warehouse and office space in the Northolt Trading Estate. It employs over 160 staff and imports a full range of pharmaceutical products including generic and branded drugs for sale to customers in the Middle East, the Far East, West/East Africa, South America and the majority of the European Union.

The company supplies all 3 national wholesalers in the U.K. as well as the 6 largest retail pharmacy chains. In addition, it supplies other wholesalers and independents thereby achieving maximum distribution across the nation.

Both Necessity Supplies Limited and Primecrown Limited operate from warehouses and offices in the same premises, which enables a consistently smooth operation of business.
