History

Wesley Wright and Richard Kirkland, forward repair activity mechanics, both deployed from Anniston Army Depot, prepare to cut the cab off of a damaged Humvee at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. The repurposed Humvee could then become part of a roll-over training device, teaching soldiers how to safely exit the vehicle. (Photo by Chuck Sprague, November 2007)

 

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.
