Lockheed Martin is set to open a new facility at its Orlando, Fla., campus as part of efforts to expand its workforce, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday.

The $50M facility measures 250K square feet and is also intended to accommodate the performance of work for a series of contracts.

“A lot of different moving parts have come together to create this overall growth,“ said Frank St. John, executive vice president at Lockheed's missiles and fire control business.

The company secured a potential $3.5B contract in 2018 to produce and deliver training platforms and simulators to the U.S. Army, followed by a $928M U.S. Air Force deal for the development of a hypersonic missile weapon system.

Lockheed also plans to partner with local schools in a move to meet potential employees.
