BETHESDA, Md., March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has combined its energy products and technologies into a single commercial line of business to be known as Lockheed Martin Energy.

Lockheed Martin Energy, based in Grand Prairie, Texas, has nearly 1,000 employees worldwide and is aligned under Lockheed Martin's Missiles and Fire Control business area.
