Holston Ordnance Works [HOW] was established in July 1942 and stopped production in 1945.
It was reactivated in 1949 during the Cold War and continues today.
The installation was renamed Holston Army Ammunition Plant [HSAAP or HAAP] in the early 1960s.
Holston Defense Corporation operated the facility from 1949 through 1999 under a series of cost reimbursement contracts with the US Army
After 1973, production was again reduced to a much smaller amount, but the plant also began producing “special-order” explosives and propellants for the armed forces, including the Navy’s Trident missile program.
It also handles and stores material for the national defense stockpile.
