Lockheed Martin Breaks ground on new production facility

US Air Force and local Alabama officials joined Lockheed Martin executives to break ground on the company’s new strike systems production facility in Troy.

The planned 225,000-square-foot facility, combined with the current cruise missile production factory, will provide the necessary space to meet the US Air Force’s objectives.

Building construction is slated for completion in 2021 with Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile Extended Range (JASSM-ER) production ramping up in the second half of 2022.

Frank St. John, Executive Vice President at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: “This expansion represents Pike County Operations’ long-standing commitment to meet our customer’s current and future needs as well as to bring more well-paying jobs to the area.

“All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”

Lockheed Martin’s Pike County Operations is the recipient of many continuous improvement and performance excellence awards.

Jason Reeves, Troy Mayor, commented:  “We’re pleased to see Lockheed Martin continue to invest in our community with the addition of this new manufacturing building. Their growth not only leads to more jobs – it enhances sustainable growth for our region.”
