Anniston Army Depot


Nested in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Alabama, Anniston Army Depot occupies over 25 square miles of land, encompassing more than 15,246 acres of woodland and 10 acres of lakes and streams. Possibly the nation's most diversified defense resource - Anniston Army Depot offers scenic splendor as well as unlimited natural resources.

Although rural in locale, Anniston Army Depot is easily accessible by road, rail, and air. Less than 5 miles south of the depot, Interstate 20 serves as a major east-west artery, providing easy access to Birmingham, AL and Atlanta, GA. Also, two airports capable of facilitating the mighty C-5 cargo plane provide convenient air transportation within just an eight mile radius. Immediate access to a main rail line is also available within the boundaries of our depot.

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." But...we're not just tanks anymore.
