Laurel, Md., 06/26/2009 -- Lockheed Martin has won a new contract to manage the Field Logistics Readiness Center (FLRC) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The contract is valued at $203 million over a five year period of performance and was awarded under the Field & Installation Readiness Support Team (FIRST) contract vehicle.

"Lockheed Martin is honored to be supporting the U.S. Army through the Fort Bragg Field Logistics Readiness Center" said Carey Smith, Vice President of Lockheed Martin Technical Services, "The FLRC provides critical logistics augmentation to Fort Bragg and the surrounding area. We look forward to delivering the responsiveness and flexibility that the U.S. Army requires and we're glad the Army put its trust in Lockheed Martin for this important work."

The contract for operating the Fort Bragg FLRC expands Lockheed Martin's already significant role in Army logistics. The Corporation already is at work operating the Field Logistics Readiness Centers at Fort Stewart and Fort Benning, Georgia.
