Coatesville, PA – Trump requested that the Lockheed Martin Plant in Coatesville stay open for now, as the company works with Pennsylvania legislators and the government to find new work. Lockheed Martin agreed, saving 465 jobs for the area. (Fox Business)
The Sikorsky S-92
Trump requested that the plant stay open – it does completion work for the Sikorsky S-92 and S-76D series helicopters. The company had planned to shutter the plant based on slumping sales. Trump owns two S-76D Sikorsky helos, but is not allowed not fly in them while he is President.
Senator Pat Toomey thanked the President for asking Lockheed Martin to keep the plant open: “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.”
