According to David Coffman, vice president, Air Mobility & Maritime Missions Production Operations at Lockheed Martin, the C-130J and F-35 Center Wing programs have a growing backlog.
Lockheed Martin has produced aircraft at its Marietta site since 1951. Every production C-130 Hercules airlifter, with more than 2,600 delivered to date, has been produced in Marietta since 1954.
More than 4,500 employees currently work at the site, supporting work on the C-130J Super Hercules final assembly and the F-35 Lightning II center wing assembly production lines.
With 3.4 million square feet of production space, some of history's most iconic aircraft have been built in Marietta, including the F-22 Raptor, C-5 Galaxy/C-5M Super Galaxy, P-3 Orion and the C-141 Starlifter.
The facility (officially known as Air Force Plant 6) first opened in 1943 to support the manufacturing of B-29 bombers by the Bell Bomber Corporation.
