Lockheed Martin UK is the UK-based arm of Lockheed Martin Corporation and has operated in the country for nearly 80 years. Headquartered in London, we employ approximately 1,800 people at more than 20 sites across the country.

From mail sorting technology to helping build the UK’s first commercial spaceport, our innovations and partnerships help solve some of the world’s most complex challenges, contributing to the UK’s defence, security and prosperity.

In addition, the F-35 programme, which Lockheed Martin is leading, will generate US$1bn per year for the UK economy at its peak, with 15% of every jet produced being made in the UK, securing a further 24,000 jobs.

The people of Lockheed Martin are critical to our success as a business – their work making a difference, every day.
