LONDON, July 2 (UPI) -- Defense giant Lockheed Martin has established a new global organization to grow its presence internationally and strengthen industrial relationships.

The company, with headquarters in London and Washington, is called Lockheed Martin International. LMI corporate offices are located in Canada, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Singapore and Australia.

"Directly engaging with and listening to our customers are essential components to maintaining and growing our global business," said Marillyn A. Hewson, Lockheed Martin chief executive officer and president. "The new Lockheed Martin International team will be responsible for strengthening our global partnerships and investing in new ones to ensure we continue to meet our global customers' diverse national security and economic development needs."

"The LMI team will align and integrate our existing international business and operations under a customer-focused strategy in the 70 countries where we do business today."

Patrick M. Dewar was named executive vice president of the new company.

"Our unified team and approach will deliver the Lockheed Martin value proposition to our customers," Dewar said. "We look forward to continuing to deliver our products, technologies and services. From the F-35, C-130J, F-16 and missile defense systems to cyber security and citizen services, we have the products our global customers need to meet their unique missions."
