Lamont announces deal with Lockheed Martin to keep Sikorsky HQ in CT through 2042
Gov. Ned Lamont says he wants to make sure the next generation of military helicopters are made in Connecticut.
Lamont announced Monday an agreement with Lockheed Martin that could bring potential new helicopter lines to Sikorsky's Stratford facility, sustain more than 7,000 jobs and keep Sikorsky's headquarters in Connecticut through 2042.
The package needs to be approved by the General Assembly.
It includes up to $75 million in tax benefits depending on the level of work secured.
The proposed agreement would last 20 years, during which time the work would be required to be done in Connecticut.
