Lockheed Martin opens $18 million Alabama engineering center

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Defense contractor Lockheed Martin on Thursday marked the opening of the company’s new $18 million engineering facility, labs and demonstration center in Huntsville, reinforcing its already large presence in Alabama.

Bethesda, Maryland-based Lockheed Martin said the 122,000-square-foot facility provides space for 500 employees who will advance national security capabilities and drive innovation in North Alabama.

“The crucial work being done here by our customers, our company, and our industry partners has made Alabama a key 21st-century, high-tech defense and deterrence provider that’s ramping up to ensure our troops will stay ahead of accelerating threats across every domain — land, sea, air, space, and cyber,” said Stephanie C. Hill, Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems president.

Governor Kay Ivey joined Lockheed Martin leaders, U.S. Department of Defense representatives and state and local officials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new facility on Thursday.
