During the MRA held Nov. 18 to 19, a team at the company’s Camden, Ark. facility measured the JLTV’s manufacturing maturity and assessed the related technical risks, Lockheed Martin announced Wednesday.
Work on the JLTVs, designed to replace the Humvee currently used by the Army and Marine Corps, will be done at the company’s Camden manufacturing complex.
“With proven assembly methods, a keen focus on efficiency and a highly skilled workforce, we are confident that the tremendous success we’ve achieved producing the HIMARS launcher for the Army and Marines will translate to an outstanding JLTV for those very same customers.” said Scott Greene, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control vice president of ground vehicles.
The Camden complex has received more than 60 awards in the past 10 years, includingthe 2012 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the Shingo Silver Medallion Award for Operation Excellence.
