Lockheed Martin AeroParts
Lockheed Martin AeroParts, Inc. (LMAPI) was established in Johnstown, Penn., in 1987 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Lockheed Martin Corporation.The 16-acre campus is comprised of three facilities encompassing a total of 284 thousand square feet of manufacturing and assembly operations.
The facility holds current ISO9001-2000, AS9100-REV C and ISO-14001 third party certifications. The facility also maintains a FAA Limited Repair Station Certification.
LMAPI supports the C-130, F-16, F-35 and C-5 platforms with new production and spare parts. The facility delivers machined details and subassembly and assembly components critical to the mission of its customers, which include sister Lockheed Martin facilities, government installations, foreign operators and commercial entities.
LMAPI has produced C-130 parts since the early 2000s. An influx of additional components and the rate increase for the C-130J has spiked effort and headcount over the past three years.
The facility has supported the F-16 program for approximately 15 years. LMAPI is known as the pylon center of excellence due to the production of approximately 25 pylon variants over time. Numerous F-16 sheet metal details and fuselage subassemblies are also produced at the facility.
Work on the F-35 began in 2008 when the site began assembly of the horizontal and vertical tail empennage for all three variants. The machining center produces approximately 70 F-35 precision stainless steel and aluminum parts on 3- and 5-axis machines. The F-35 arresting gear is also assembled at the Johnstown site.
