Nested in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Alabama, Anniston Army Depot occupies over 25 square miles of land, encompassing more than 18,000 acres of woodland and 40 acres of lakes and streams. Additionally, there are over 2,100 buildings and structures as well as 266 miles of roads and streets, 87 miles of fencing and 46 miles of railroad tracks.  Anniston Army Depot is located between two major cities, Atlanta, GA, 90 miles to the east on Interstate 20 and Birmingham, AL, 60 miles west on Interstate 20.  Possibly the nation's most diversified defense resource - Anniston Army Depot offers scenic splendor as well as unlimited natural resources.


Transition from backwoods forest to a high-density industrial complex defines the life span of Anniston Army Depot.  But it only hints at the diverse and wide-ranging missions that have marked over a half-century of patriotic service to the Nation and to the men and women of our Armed Services.  From its origin in 1942 as a storage depot, Anniston Army Depot has transformed into a state-of-the-market maintenance facility, earning its highly-esteemed reputation as "The Tank Rebuild Center of the World."  Broadly diversified skills are deep-rooted at Anniston and our success is attributable to the teaming of our highly skilled workforce with a strong management support structure. Our workforce, armed with state-of-the-art equipment and technology, invite the challenge of any new work effort with the renowned "Anniston can do it" attitude.


Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) is the only Army depot capable of performing maintenance on both heavy and light-tracked combat vehicles and their components. The depot is designated as the Center of Technical Excellence for the M1 Abrams Tank and is the designated candidate depot for the repair of the M60, AVLB, M728 and M88 combat vehicles. ANAD has assumed responsibility for the Towed and self-propelled artillery as well as the M113 Family of Vehicles (FOV).  Under partnership agreements a wide range of vehicle conversions and upgrades are currently underway. The depot also performs maintenance on individual and crew-served weapons as well as land combat missiles and small arms. Additionally, the maintenance and storage of conventional ammunition and missiles, as well as the storage of seven percent of the Nation's chemical munitions stockpile until the stockpile is demilitarized, are significant parts of the depot's overall missions and capabilities.

Active Duty Officers, DoD Civilian Employees, Tenant Employees, Contract Employees, and NAF Employees.  Key tenant organizations on the depot include the Defense Distribution Depot, Anniston (DDAA), the Anniston Munitions Center (ANMC) the Anniston Chemical Activity (ANCA), the Program Manager for Chemical Demilitarization (PMCD), the Center of Military History Clearing House, the 722nd Ordnance Company (Explosive Ordnance Disposal - EOD) and the Defense Reutilization and Marketing.
