An essential part of the military’s logistical supply chain is the National/NATO Stock Number system (NSN). NSNs are used to manage and identify all supply items. They also help to standardize the military requirements for testing and evaluating supply items. All product characteristics and performance data must be identified in the cataloging process used to assign new NSNs. McLube currently offers eight products with NSNs.

Appropriate authorities may contact McLube for more information about our NSN-assigned products.
