Lockheed Martin Expands Cruise Missile Production Facility

Lockheed Martin celebrated the opening of its cruise missile annex with a ribbon cutting ceremony today at its Pike County Operations facility in Troy, Alabama. Customers, state officials and community leaders joined employees in opening the annex, which will support an increase in U.S. and international orders.

“The completion of the cruise missile annex represents the first fruits of Lockheed Martin’s partnership with Alabama to promote long-term growth in Pike County,” said Site Director David Anderson. “So far in 2015, we have hired over 75 employees to fill high-tech positions at our Pike County facility, 20 of whom support cruise missile final assembly. This growth is a result of new business our state partners helped us bring to Alabama.”
