"Our founders – the Lockheed brothers and Glenn L. Martin – were visionary and relentless innovators," said Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed Martin President and COO. "It's no coincidence that both Lockheed and Martin chose a bold, dynamic star as their company logo. To them, the star represented performance, leadership and integrity – the same principles it represents for us today."
In 1995, Lockheed Corporation merged with Martin Marietta, also founded in 1912 as the Glenn L. Martin Company, to form today's Lockheed Martin. The corporation also celebrated the Martin anniversary on Aug. 16.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
