Marinette Marine to stay busy building littoral ships for Navy
MARINETTE - The makers of combat ships in Marinette will stay busy for at least five more years. Defense contractor Lockheed Martin is getting almost $700-million federal dollars to construct two more littoral combat boats at Marinette Marine through July of 2018.
It's part of a larger Navy contract approved three years ago, in which Lockheed Martin is delivering the first 20 ships - half built in Marinette, and the rest at the Austal USA plant in Mobile, Alabama.
