ATK to make jet parts in Clearfield

Alliant Techsytems said it has received a new $110 million contract from Lockheed Martin to produce additional components for the F-35 Lightening II — Joint Strike Fighter. Production of the carbon-fiber composite components will take place at ATK’s existing facility in Clearfield beginning later this year and continuing through 2015. The new contract will result in an estimated 50 new jobs at Clearfield over the next three to four years. ATK now employs about 900 people in Clearfield. Salt Lake Tribune
