Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is hosting a hiring event on July 30 in search of 400 more employees for its F-35 production teams.

“The F-35 is an iconic product that represents the best of U.S. innovation, technology leadership, and advanced manufacturing,” said chairman, president and chief executive officer of Lockheed Martin, Marillyn Hewson. “The program supports 194,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide, and as we ramp up production we are creating even more opportunities for American workers. The men and women who participate in the F-35 program take pride in delivering unmatched, fifth-generation capabilities to the U.S. military and our allies around the world.”

The 400 new employees will join the recently hired 1,800 workers brought on by the global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company.

The company announced the latest new hires in conjunction with the Trump Administration’s second Made in America day, which showcased a full-scale F-35 model on the South Lawn of the White House.
