Lockheed Martin AeroParts Adding Jobs to Johnstown

Lockheed Martin announced Thursday, March 23, that they will be expanding production for components of the F-35 Lightning II with a new facility in Johnstown. This expansion will add more than 40 new jobs by the end of 2018.

“The F-35 Lightning II is beginning to transition to full-rate production and the manufacturing expertise we have here has a growing role in delivering this incredible aircraft to the men and women who defend our nation,” said Gilda Jackson, general manager of Lockheed Martin AeroParts.

Lockheed Martin is in the process of finalizing plans to lease and equip an additional facility to accommodate this new work and begin producing a subset of parts for the program.
