About us

Nordic Rescue Group

Nordic Rescue Group (NRG) is an international system supplier that specialises in designing and manufacturing rescue vehicles. The company was established in 2020 when Sievi Capital and Tesi acquired established companies Vema Lift and Saurus, which have developed from small independent operators in the 1980s into well-known international suppliers.

As an international company, we have access to a global network of preferred suppliers, cooperate with several partners and export products abroad on a large scale. We leverage these capabilities to manufacture the best range of rescue vehicles on the market. Our broad offering includes civilian and military fire trucks, hydraulic rescue lifts and special vehicles.

We owe our success to our comprehensive product range, our understanding of rescue operations and our customer-oriented and committed approach to our work.
