July 10, 2019

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding the news that Lockheed Martin's Sikorsky Helicopter plant in Coatesville, Pennsylvania will remain operational as the company searches for additional work:

"Lockheed Martin's commitment to keep operational the Sikorsky helicopter plant in Coatesville provides short-term certainty for 465 workers, who were expected to either lose their jobs or be re-located later this year. Many thanks to President Trump, my congressional colleagues, and community leaders with whom I worked to prevent the plant's immediate closure. I remain dedicated to supporting the workers in Coatesville and will remain engaged on this issue."
