MSC-K is able to keep its quality standards high and production costs low because the ROK assists with many of the costs associated with stationing U.S.
Logistics Cost Sharing is another ROK-funded program that allows MSC-K to purchase supplies, tools, equipment, and services for its repair and production facilities.
By leveraging Logistics Cost Sharing, MSC-K has added capabilities, improved quality and safety, and increased efficiency at no cost to U.S.
In the last three years, MSC-K has received more than $18 million of Logistics Cost Sharing funds to purchase a 60-ton crane, a rail car mover, part washers, paint drying booths, ventilation systems, forklifts, and dozens of other items.
MSC-K is a qualified provider for the Army Materiel Command's National Maintenance Program.
Units also ask MSC-K to fabricate specialized parts that are not available through the supply system.
MSC-K's Supply and Transportation Directorate (S&T) plays another critical role in Industrial Base operations.
Units directed to retrograde class VII (major end items) equipment outside of Korea can turn it in to MSC-K. S&T will then work directly with MSC-K's Directorate of Maintenance to bring the equipment up to the standard required by disposition instructions.
