ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- Officials at Lockheed Martin have announced the company is moving 560 Marietta-based manufacturing jobs to Texas.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday reported employees who worked on F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets will be relocated to Fort Worth next year. About 600 Lockheed employees work on F-22 jets in Marietta.

The newspaper reports the move will save the company about $50 million annually, and the company has cut about 26,000 jobs over the past three years.

The company's Marietta-based workforce has decreased by about 1,000 in 2012.
