History

Over the past half century, Anniston Army Depot has transitioned from forested depot to a high-density industrial complex while hosting a plethora of diverse and wide-ranging missions. Since its origin in 1942 as a storage depot, ANAD has been 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, invites the challenge of any new work effort with the renowned “Anniston can do it” attitude.

Mission

Anniston Army Depot, a part of the U.S. Army Tank Automotive and Armaments Command, 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 towed and self-propelled artillery as well as the M113 Family of Vehicles. 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, are significant parts of the depot’s overall missions and capabilities.
