Lockheed Martin is to consolidate its spare parts and logistic services business under its Aircraft &Logistics Centers unit based in Greenville, South Carolina. The move is part of the plan to grow the company's support business, which led to last year's consolidation of its aircraft maintenance and modification operations at Greenville.

The new group, Lockheed Martin Logistic Services, will focus initially on the C-130B/E/H and F-16A/B while phasing in support for the L-1011 and other aircraft. The new C-130J and current F-16C/D will be supported by the Lockheed Martin divisions responsible for their manufacture.

Logistic Services will act as a single point of contact for aftermarket spares and support for Lockheed Martin aircraft. It will provide component overhaul and repair, aircraft-on-ground support and on-line part ordering.
