The Department of Defense has awarded Lockheed Martin a contract worth as much as $5 billion that includes work that will be done at the company's operations at Bluegrass Station in Lexington.
The contract is for logistics support services in support of the U.S. Special Operations Command and is expected to last through March 2018, according to a Department of Defense statement.
"We are pleased that Lockheed Martin's contract with the United States Special Operations Command has been reinstated," said John Surdo, Lockheed Martin program manager, in a statement. "We look forward to getting to work providing critical services to the valiant men and women of the Special Operations Forces."
The company could not say whether the contract will mean any additional jobs at its operations at Bluegrass Station.
