I am pleased that Secretary Spencer will see first-hand the outstanding workforce and the state-of the-art facilities that Lockheed Martin is known for, and look forward to new opportunities for collaboration and to support our nation’s armed forces.”
In July Schumer visited the Lockheed’s Martin’s Rotary and Missions Systems in Owego, where he met with top executives and renewed his effort to support New York jobs, including the approximately 2,600 in Owego.
