Courtney statement on acquisition of Sikorsky by Lockheed Martin
WASHINGTON—Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-2) released the following statement after Lockheed Martin announced that it closed its acquisition of Sikorsky Aircraft today:
"The completion of the merger between Sikorsky and Lockheed Martin is great news for Connecticut, and bodes well for a stable future for Sikorsky and its workforce. Lockheed is well-suited to guide Sikorsky—our nation's top helicopter maker—forward to build on Connecticut's legacy of innovation and excellence in aerospace. I am confident that under the leadership of Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky's workers will continue their stellar record of producing the highly advanced helicopter fleet our service members rely on," Courtney said.
