Lockheed Martin will begin manufacturing additional F-16 parts at its Johnstown facility in Pennsylvania.
Lockheed Martin is bringing more F-16 parts manufacturing to its facility in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The work will generate 80 new jobs in the city and the company plans to lease a new building to accommodate it.
F-16 parts that will be produced in Johnstown include the aft engine access covers, engine access doors, F-1 fuel tank and inlet. Upon completion the parts will be shipped to Greenville, South Carolina, for final assembly and integration into the F-16s.
Work in Johnstown will begin this year, with the bulk of hiring and other significant efforts beginning in 2022. In addition to the F-16 it also provides parts and services for the F-35 and F-22 fighter jets and the C-130 military transport aircraft.
Wayne Davis, director at Lockheed Martin's Johnstown site, says: “Lockheed Martin continues to see demand for new F-16s around the world, requiring development of additional parts manufacturing sites to ensure it can keep up with demand.
“Johnstown's selection for this new work reflects the highly skilled workforce in the area, a record of quality production and the space available to expand.”
