(KFYI News) Lockheed Martin announced it will close and consolidate some of its facilities nationally, cutting 4,000 jobs. 

Among the cuts include the closure of a plant in Goodyear, AZ.  Plants in Akron, OH, Newtown, PA and Horizon City, TX are also slated to close sometime in 2015.

They blame the cuts on the drop in U.S. government spending.
