Lockheed Martin began operations at the site in 1962. From the first day, the plant’s primary workload has been building subassemblies for Lockheed Martin’s venerable workhorse – the C-130 Hercules.
The plant’s employees produce approximately 7% of each C-130 aircraft. The assemblies include a major portion of the forward fuselage, the cargo ramp, leading edges of the wings, major wing components, and the wheel well fairings into which the main landing gears retract during flight.
Lockheed Martin’s Clarksburg facility compromises approximately 65,000 square feet of floor space. Production operations incorporate basic airframe assembly processes including paint. Personnel use major tooling jigs in building primary C-130 subassemblies.
