Lockheed Martin plans $19 million expansion in Huntsville

In the aftermath of winning a $347 million U.S. Army contract – which will result in creating 200 new jobs in Huntsville – Lockheed Martin is planning a major expansion of its campus in Cummings Research Park.

Lockheed Martin has communicated to the city of Huntsville that it will spend at least $19.3 million at its Huntsville location on Bradford Drive to help support the new Army contract to serve as the Long Range Hypersonic Weapon prototype system integrator.

The Huntsville city council will consider a project development agreement with Lockheed Martin at its meeting Thursday night.
