The Pantex Plant’s work force should remain busy in the coming years as the facility dismantles larger numbers of nuclear weapons and continues refurbishing older warheads, a top National Nuclear Security Administration official said Friday.

Pantex, located about 17 miles northeast of Amarillo, assembles and dismantles all U.S. nuclear weapons.

NNSA Deputy Administrator Robert Smolen visited Pantex Friday to tout the department’s completion of a program to refurbish the B61 strategic nuclear bomb.
