Frank St. John has a good problem on his hands at Lockheed Martin’s Orlando, Florida campus.
As the defense giant quickly grows its workforce here – having added more than 1,000 workers since summer 2017 – it has had to build more space to match.
The result is a $50 million, 250,000-square-foot facility set to debut this month. But even that building will be nearly at capacity when it opens.
“We can’t get that building up fast enough,” said St. John, executive vice president of the firm’s Missiles and Fire Control division. “Once it opens, it will be immediately full.”
