The Anniston Army Depot has been selected to be the Primary Depot Source of Repair for the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle. The depot was selected based on evaluation criteria which examined several areas involving labor force, stability and depot-level repairable capabilities. Congressman Mike Rogers says that Senator Richard Shelby lead the efforts to ensure this system would be awarded to the Anniston Army Depot.
Anniston is the US Military’s premier repair and overhaul facility and Rogers says this new mission will continue its vital work for our men and women in uniform. The depot has nearly 3,600 employees and an economic impact of more than $1 billion making the depot the largest employer in Calhoun County.
