Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Alabama, Anniston Army Depot is a U.S. Army maintenance center and munitions storage site occupying more than 25 square miles of land.

The installation has more than 15,000 acres of woodland; 3.5 million square feet of maintenance and production buildings; 419,029 square feet of administrative buildings; and 6.8 million square feet of storage buildings - with room to expand.

Possibly the nation's most diversified defense resource - Anniston Army Depot offers scenic splendor as well as unlimited natural resources.

It is easily accessible by road, rail, air, and water. Nearby, there are two airports within an eight-mile radius. Within only five miles of our southern boundary, Interstate 20 serves as a major east-west artery, providing easy access to Birmingham, AL and Atlanta, GA. Immediate access to a main rail line is also available within the boundaries of our depot. The closest major seaports are the Port of Mobile and the Port of Savannah, operated by the Alabama State Port Authority and Georgia Ports Authority, respectively.

From its origin in 1941 as a storage depot, Anniston Army Depot has transformed into a state-of-the-market maintenance facility and is most often recognized for its heavy combat vehicle, small arms weaponry and locomotive expertise. ANAD is the Department of Defense's Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence (CITE) for combat vehicles (minus Bradley), assault bridging, artillery, small caliber weapons and locomotives, rail equipment and non-tactical generators.
