Lockheed Martin is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Lockheed Company, which was originally incorporated on December 19 1912, in San Francisco, California.
“It took the Lockheed brothers two years of hard work to get their first plane airborne, and they faced innumerable technical and operational challenges along the way,” said Bob Stevens, Lockheed Martin Chairman and CEO. “But they pressed on, because they knew that pushing the boundaries of innovation is neither simple nor easy. A century later, that same dedication still propels us to take on our customers’ toughest challenges.”
To mark the occasion, Lockheed Martin is making donations in honour of Lockheed’s founders to the Burbank Historical Society’s Gordon R. Howard Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. Lockheed Martin says both organisations work to preserve the history of the early aerospace industry in California.
