Lockheed Martin Honored Twice in One Day for Contributions to Baltimore County
Baltimore, MD, 18-JUN-04 -- Baltimore County honored Lockheed Martin twice June 17 for its partnership with the Baltimore community. County Executive James T. Smith, Jr. presented the company with the Good Neighbor Week Volunteer Service Award during a function at Towson University and the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Engine Award at a separate function at the Baltimore County Country Club.
“It was a great day for Lockheed Martin in Baltimore County,” Smith said. “We are thrilled to have them as a long-time member of our community. They exemplify what a true corporate citizen can and should be.”
The Good Neighbor Week Award was presented to Lockheed Martin for its devotion to strengthening the community. In addition to donating more than $130,000 to various charities, Lockheed Martin’s employees volunteered more than 5,000 hours in Baltimore County in 2003. The Economic Engine Award recognizes Lockheed Martin’s position as a leader in the defense industry and as one of the largest employers in Baltimore County.
“We are flattered that Baltimore County chose to recognize us with both of these awards,” said Jon Wing, acting vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s Baltimore facility. “After 75 years of business in Baltimore, our employees and our company remain committed to this community.” Lockheed Martin will celebrate its 75th anniversary in Baltimore on Oct. 7, 2004.
