About Lockheed Martin UK

Our History

Lockheed Martin UK is the UK-based arm of Lockheed Martin Corporation and has operated in the country for nearly 80 years.

From mail sorting technology to helping build the UK’s first commercial spaceport, our innovations and partnerships have long contributed to the UK’s defence, security and prosperity.

And while the F-35 Lightning II is currently providing game changing, 5th generation capability to the UK Armed Forces, our legacy was forged decades ago as RAF pilots took to the skies in the Lockheed Hudson and Martin Marauder.
