Lockheed Martin is moving more jobs to Middle River.
According to the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, the company is relocating approximately 70 positions from its Global Supply Chain Services facility in Johnstown, PA.
According to state officials, Lockheed believes the move will save the company $1.6 million per year.
According to the state agency, the transition to Middle River will "begin immediately" and employees at Johnstown were notified Wednesday. In a statement given to state officials, Lockheed Martin said the company is "working toward making positions available to qualified Johnstown GSCS employees willing to relocate to Middle River. Additional roles will be filled locally as needed.”
Lockheed Martin's facility in Middle River—once used by the Glenn L. Martin Co. and built in 1929—now employs 420 of the company's 7,539 employees in Maryland.
