Lockheed Martin is planning to add 300 people to its Greenville workforce this year to help meet the increasing demand for the F-16 Block 70/72 fighter jet being produced here.
The company said in a news release that it will conduct interviews and make hiring decisions at a hiring event from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 17, at McAlister Square in Greenville.
The hires are in addition to 150 new hires already this year, according to a news release.
Lockheed Martin has about 400 employees working on F-16 production in Greenville, according to Madison Callahan, a spokesperson for Lockheed Martin. About half of those workers are "touch professionals," such as mechanics and technicians, and half provide direct support services such as planning, engineering and quality control, Callahan said in an email.
Lockheed's total Greenville workforce is about 900.
The positions being filled include airframe and powerplant mechanics, avionics technicians and structures mechanics. The jobs come with sign-on bonuses of up to $20,000 and relocation expenses up to $5,000, according to the news release.
The company did not provide a salary range for the new positions. However, Callahan said in an email that Lockheed recently increased hourly pay and salaries for most positions.
The company announced last October that it would be adding at least 300 jobs to Greenville by the end of the year.
The hiring is driven by demand.
There is a backlog of 128 new F-16 Block 70/72 jets that will be produced in Greenville for five countries: Bahrain, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Taiwan and one that has not been identified by the company.
There is a potential for another 300 orders for the fighter based on international interest, Callahan said.
Flight tests on the first F-16 Block 70 to be delivered to Bahrain will begin in 2023, with the rate of production increasing during the year. Callahan called the production of the F-16 a "multi-year process that ramps up incrementally."
Lockheed Martin announced in 2017 that it would move production of the F-16 fighter jet to Greenville. Last year, the company announced a $900 million contract with the U.S. Air Force to provide sustainment support and depot-overflow services for F-16s. That contract was expected to create up to 80 jobs at the time.
At Tuesday’s event, interviews and hiring decisions will be made on the same day.
McAlister Square is at 225 S. Pleasantburg Drive.

Stan Sedran, a World War II veteran and longtime businessman who was an integral fixture in Greenville's downtown revitalization, died Thursday, May 12. He was 101 years old.
After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Sedran ran Sedran Furs on North Main Street in downtown for more than 60 years.
He lived by the Golden Rule — treat others as you want to be treated — and his signature expression: "It's not what you know, it's who you know."
His daughter, Cindy Sedran, described her father as a man of integrity and humor.
"He had a heart of gold," she said.
Sedran was born Jan. 11, 1921, in the Bronx in New York City. He was the second of two boys born to Joseph and Pauline Sedran.
He was drafted into the war in 1942 at 21 years old. Appointed an Air Force bombardier, Sedran flew B-25s, which became one of the most heavily armed airplanes in the world, according to Boeing. He flew missions across North Africa, Italy and France, following the U.S. infantry.
In a 2021 interview with The Greenville News, he spoke of the scars that the war left on him.
"I lost a lot of friends. I'm responsible for killing a lot of people who spoke a different language," Sedran said. "And to this day I realize what I went through, dropping bombs on people I didn't know. They had families."
But, "It was the right thing, because we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that," Sedran told The News.
Stan and his wife, May, came to Greenville in 1953 to start their fur business. At first, they had a store where the Hyatt hotel is now. A few years later, they moved to the corner of North Main and College streets, where they remained for 35 years.
They had a successful business, Cindy said. In the 1990s, they had more than 5,000 furs to store away for the summer, "which goes to show just how much business they brought to Greenville," she said in a note.
The Sedrans watched as the city changed and grew.
"I took a liking to Greenville very much," Sedran previously told The News. "I saw what I still see today, things that can be improved so much, and the growth."
Not just a business owner, Sedran was civically involved, too. The city of Greenville one time awarded Sedran with an "appreciation of service" award after he served on on a local community development task force, Cindy Sedran said.
"Stan was a beloved Greenville original," Mayor Knox White said in a text message. "For generations he and his business on Main Street were the heart and soul of downtown. I always appreciated his insight and embrace of the city he loved."
Sedran discovered in 2015 that his lease wouldn't be renewed on Main Street. Relocating would be too expensive, so he sold his inventory and moved to the suburbs in Taylors.
He was still active in the community after retirement. Stan was a member of two nonprofits, the Kiwanis Club and Sertoma Inc., for over 50 years, Cindy said. He received awards for perfect attendance for 12 years in a row.
Sedran also coached a local baseball team and played golf every Sunday, Cindy said.
"He was my mentor and best friend," she said.

After years of planning and 22 months of construction, Unity Park opens Thursday with an official ceremony at 10 a.m..
The 60-acre park runs from the A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School of Engineering on the southeastern edge to Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.
The Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail runs through the park, flanked by trailside businesses such as The Commons food hall on Welborn Street and businesses on Delano Drive.
The park includes green space, the Mayberry baseball field, pedestrian bridges, a splash pad and playgrounds as well as the restoration of the Reedy River, which flows through the heart of the park.
The park also includes several walking trails:
Here's what to know before you go:
Beginning May 19, park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Unity Park will be open year-round.
Prisma Health Welcome Center hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, although its opening date is yet to be announced.
The welcome center will be closed on the following holidays:
Unity Park is located west of downtown Greenville in what now encompasses Mayberry Park and the former Meadowbrook Park.
The park's address is 320 S. Hudson St, Greenville, SC, 29601.
The city has 362 free parking spots on site, according to the Unity Park website.
The park can also be accessed via the Swamp Rabbit Trail, which runs through the park.
The city will begin accepting facility reservations and rental requests on July 5.
Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the park, except when they are provided at a permitted special event at the Prisma Health Welcome Center. In that case, a temporary special event alcohol license may be required. See the city's parks and recreation regulations for more information.
Leashed dogs are allowed in the park, but only service animals are permitted in indoor facilities and at special events. Under state regulations, only service animals are allowed in the splash pad and playground area.
The Greenville Water Splash Pad opens May 19. It is recommended for all ages, but children under 12 must have an adult with them.
Children who wear diapers must wear a swim diaper in the Greenville Water Splash Pad.

The $60 million project near downtown Greenville opens May 19, 2022 to the public and we’ve got all the details.
The huge Unity Park will open to the public on May 19, 2022 and it is gorgeous. Families will love the wide-open spaces, playgrounds, shelters, paved trails, and of course, the splash pad.
There are three playgrounds at the park: a natural play area with lots of climbing apparatuses, a turf playground with large hills for more climbing, slides, and swings, and a tot play area with a music garden and equipment perfect for the smaller ages.
Fencing is around all playgrounds but there are no gates so parents need to be aware of where their kids are wandering off to. There is plenty of seating throughout all the playgrounds and really, parents may want to get in there and play with their kids because everything is so fun!
The playgrounds are set on two acres, making the space enormous. There is a lot of room to run around, get out energy, and just enjoy being a kid. The playgrounds and splash pad together are one of, if not the, largest playgrounds in Greenville.
Let’s get to the good stuff! The splash pad is set up with several benches and is stationed right next to the toddler playground. The splash pad has two sections – one for smaller kids with shorter water spouts and then another area for bigger kids, where the water can shoot up to nine feet high.
The splash pad is located in between the toddler play area and the bigger kid playground and next to the public restrooms. It’s really in a great place for parents to be able to watch the kids no matter where they want to play.
Unity Park has a ton of open green space on the Michelin Green, which is just perfect for running around, having a picnic, or just relaxing in a beautiful spot. I can easily imagine lots of people out there reading a book while laying on a blanket and enjoying the beauty of the park.
There are beautifully-constructed shelters along the Green as well that will be available for rent starting over the summer. It is in this open space where families can gather for special events, such as the big fireworks display in Greenville on July 4th (more on that below).
Close to The Commons is the Prisma Health Welcome Center, which has a lactation room, restrooms, a rotating art display, and a history wall. There is a big wraparound deck where people can sit at tables and enjoy the view, conduct business meetings, and just watch their kids play in the open space below.
The Welcome Center is available to rent out as well and is an excellent space for corporate meetings and events.
While the park is beautiful on the outside, so much work went into it behind the scenes that truly make the space something special.
At the large playground there are several big dirt mounds that are meant for climbing and rolling down. They were covered in spraycrete and then wrapped in cushioning. The turf is super bouncy as well, making for a pretty soft surface.
The other surfaces, including poured-in-place rubber and synthetic turf, were all thoughtfully selected to provide protection for kids as they naturally fall or take a tumble. The surfaces are also ADA-accessible, are is the route that leads kids up to the lookout tower, where you get an awesome view of the park.
The management of the Reedy River was also a key construction aspect of Unity Park. Engineers and landscape architects worked together to reduce the risk of flooding and improve water quality by creating flat tables with specially selected trees, plants, and flowers. This enables the area to be able to absorb more of the river in a possible flood situation – plus it looks pretty! There is also a state-of-the-art drainage system in place to aid in this project.
You’ll get a great view of the new Auro Bridge if you head down to the river to check out the pretty flowers and other fauna on the river table.
The main entrance to Unity Park is off Hudson Street and onto Welborn Street and into the Commons. You can park there or in another lot off Meadow Street, which will get you pretty close to the Commons as well. You just have to walk across a small bridge and then the playgrounds will be to the left.
Unity Park will also be accessible via the Greenville Trolley system. Additionally, you can ride bikes from the Children’s Garden at Linky Park or park in several of the paid parking lots near there and walk the quarter-mile on the Swamp Rabbit Trail over to the park.
Greenville’s big fireworks display is moving to Unity Park on Monday, July 4, from 6 -10 pm. It is not a festival so no alcohol will be served and pets are not allowed at any public event at the park. The space is perfect for bringing a picnic dinner and letting the kids get out their energy before the big show.
You can bring coolers, chairs, blankets, and food but alcohol is not allowed.
Unity Park is open 5 am – 11 pm daily.
