Lockheed Plans UK-Based Exports Hub; Stephen Ball Comments

LockheedLogoLockheed Martin plans to use its U.K. operations as a hub for international exports, the Daily Express reports.

Tracey Boles writes the company is pursuing contracts in Australia, Kuwait and Poland under its strategy.

Boles also reports that Lockheed is aiming to help its 1,000 U.K.-based suppliers and also plans to double its workforce there to 5,000.

“There are growing international opportunities for us in armored vehicles, military flight training and postal recognition technology,” Stephen Ball, Lockheed’s U.K. chief executive, told the Daily Express.

Lockheed performs air traffic control services in the U.K., supplies Warrior armored vehicles to the British army and helps run military flight training in the U.K.
