About the U.S. Army Materiel Command
The U.S. Army Materiel Command is the Army's premier provider of materiel readiness – technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection, and sustainment – to the total force, across the spectrum of joint military operations. If a Soldier shoots it, drives it, flies it, wears it, eats it or communicates with it, AMC provides it.
AMC is headquartered at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, and impacts or has a presence in all 50 states and 150 countries. Manning these organizations is a work force of more than 70,000 dedicated military and civilian employees, many with highly developed specialties in weapons development, manufacturing and logistics.
The 2005 Base Realignment and Closure decision relocated AMC headquarters to Redstone Arsenal, Ala. Personnel began relocating to Redstone in 2006 and the command was completely relocated by the summer of 2011.
