SHAARS International, Inc. is a family owned business. The name SHAARS comes from the combination of the names of the two sons (Shayaan and Arslaan) of our owners, Capt. Shahid Naseer and Dr. Aliya Naseer. Our customers and manufacturers are always treated as an extended family and we foster family values with all of our partners.
SHAARS International carries a wide variety of animal care and safety products. We also have the capability of providing any product that the customer requires, even outside of our portfolio, particularly project business.
Considerations include: Though United States is the largest consumer market in the world, 95% of the world’s consumers live outside the USA. During the past 25 years US Exports increased from $224 Billion to $1.1 Trillion. The current US Administration has a target to double USA exports within the next 4 years. Approximately 2/3 of companies export to only one country.
SHAARS’ mission is to help US Manufacturers export, market and sell their products in the International markets. We research and develop channel partners for each product line and ensure risk free transactions. Our services do not add any overhead to our manufacturers/suppliers. Our distributors benefit from our specially negotiated price from our manufactures/suppliers. We pass on the savings to our distributors. We work with world class freight forwarders that provide excellent service at a competitive rate.
