Lockheed Martin announces Lufkin expansion groundbreaking

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An expansion of the Lockheed Martin facility in Lufkin will effectively double the size of the plant, the firm announced Wednesday.

The groundbreaking will be at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at the Lockheed Martin plant in Lufkin.
