HistoryEdit

On August 16, 1912, Glenn Martin established the Glenn L. Martin Company in Los Angeles, California. He decided to start the company after he built his first plane in a rented church building.

Four months later, on December 19, 1912, Allan and Malcolm Lockheed founded the "Alco Hydro-Aeroplane Company", later renamed to the "Lockheed Aircraft Company". They set up shop inside a garage, constructing seaplanes that would shatter speed and distance records for over-water flights.

Lockheed Martin is the result of these two companies merging in 1995.

  • Lockheed Martin employs over 165,000 people worldwide.
