Lockheed Martin UK (LMUK) Ampthill opens its first satellite facility at MIRA Technology Park Enterprise Zone today (12 June 2013).
Benefiting from Enterprise Zone status, the LMUK site will combine office space with a workshop and lab facilities to house up to 30 staff.
Alan McCormick, vice president and managing director of LMUK Ampthill, said:
“We are keen to attract electrical and electronic design engineers, mechanical design engineers and system integration and test engineers.
“The creation of this satellite within the Enterprise Zone, combined with MIRA’s plans for the Technology Park, will see this relationship develop and grow, enabling us to attract a skilled and dynamic workforce and take advantage of a range of test facilities not available to us at our Ampthill site.”
Dr Geoff Davis, chief commercial and technology officer at MIRA, said:
“Our aim has always been to create the ideal location for businesses to foster and realise technical innovation.
“MIRA Technology Park Enterprise Zone is now well on its way to becoming one of the most advanced research and development communities for transport technologies in Europe.
“We are extremely pleased Lockheed Martin will be part of that story.”
