“Denmark continues to benefit from participating in the F-35 program, and this contract award with Multicut reaffirms Lockheed Martin’s commitment to grow the industrial participation program with Danish companies of all sizes,” said Jack Crisler, Lockheed Martin F-35 vice president. “Multicut and other Danish companies are participating in a truly international, highly innovative ‘next generation’ program, which will endure for more than 40 years.
