Lockheed Martin units name 18 small businesses as outstanding suppliers

Lockheed Martin recognized 18 small businesses from across the United States for their outstanding support of the corporation’s business units in Orlando, Fla., and Dallas, Texas, at an awards ceremony April 24.

Each year, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control and Lockheed Martin Global Training and Logistics nominate and select small businesses that have consistently provided outstanding support and products during the past year. Though the corporation has thousands of suppliers, only a few small businesses are recognized each year for their outstanding quality in goods and services.

“We are fortunate to have a strong base of critical suppliers that support our 14 major U.S. operations from California to New England,” said Jim Berry, president of Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business. “Small business firms provide unique talents that help us produce superior defense systems and advanced technologies to protect U.S. and allied warfighters.”

“Our small business partners add relevant capabilities we incorporate into the solutions we provide to our customers,” said Denise Saiki, president of Lockheed Martin’s Global Training and Logistics business. “We have developed valuable relationships with our partners and are happy to recognize their significant role in supporting our customers’ needs.”
