Lockheed MartinÂ expects to create as many as 300 jobs over the next four years through an expansion of the company’s spacecraft technology processing operations in Titusville, Florida.
The Economic Development Commission of Floridaâ€™s Space Coast said TuesdayÂ that Lockheed will receive incentives from the state of Florida and theÂ North Brevard Economic Development Zone program to help increase capabilities at a local facility run by the company’sÂ subsidiaryÂ Astrotech Space Operations.
Astrotech Space Operations processesÂ payloads for space launch missions of government and commercial clients.
The expansion project seeks toÂ expand the unit’s scope of work to include production of aerospace components and subsystems, Lockheed said Tuesday.
“Partnering with the community creates a win-win for Florida, for Lockheed Martin and for our customers,” notedÂ Tom Malko, vice president of assembly, test and launch operations at Lockheed’s space systems business.
