U.S. Navy ships like this one are just one of the many that are built by Marinette Marine Corp. in Marinette, Wisconsin.

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.
