Lockheed Martin Corp announced Wednesday it will keep the Sikorsky helicopter plant in Pennsylvania open after President Trump requested the facility remain active, saving about 465 jobs.
Marillyn Hewson, the company’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement posted on Twitter that she decided to keep the facility in Coatesville open because “it’s a good operation with an excellent workforce.”
“At the request of President Trump, I took another look at our decision to close the Coatesville, PA, facility and have decided to keep it open while we pursue additional work,” Hewson said in a statement Wednesday. “It’s a good operation with an excellent workforce. We look forward to working with the government and PA Congressional delegation to find more for this facility.”
