Lockhead Martin

Lockheed Martin has roots in Alabama dating back more than half a century. The aerospace giant has a major presence in Huntsville and a missile factory in Pike County.

in 2015, Lockheed brought 100 additional jobs to Huntsville as part of a consolidation of its Control, Command, Battle Management and Communications program. The company’s Space Systems unit has been active in Huntsville since 1963.

The company has more than 1,000 employees in Huntsville and nearby Courtland, where it assembles defense systems.

Lockheed opened its Pike County Operations in 1994 with 30 employees, a figure that has grown to 350-plus employees after rounds of expansion. The company is adding $55 million in new investment at the site and increasing the workforce by 200 positions by 2020.

The facility has 38 buildings, including four major production plants, on nearly 3,900 acres near Troy. The site supports a variety of missile production programs, including the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) guided missile, the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) and the Javelin anti-armor missile.

IndustryWeek recognized the Alabama facility as one of North America’s Best Plants in 1997 and again in 2012.
