Lockheed Martin grows in Camden
Lockheed Martin is investing $142 million in its Camden facility in Arkansas, the company announced on 17 June.
The Camden facility produces the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System and performs final assembly for Integrated Air and Missile Defense and precision fires products for US and allied military services.
The expansion will support new construction and improve existing facilities for products such as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, Army Tactical Missile System, Patriot Advanced Capability-3 and others, plus new machinery and equipment.
Frank St John, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: ‘Our facility in Camden is a highly efficient, high quality centre of excellence that contributes components and performs final assembly for products that are important to the defence of the United States and a growing number of allied nations.
‘The facility has a long record of precision manufacturing and on-time deliveries, which is the reason we continue to invest in and expand our Camden operations. This expansion will help ensure the availability, affordability and quality of systems we build for our customers around the world.’
