Just a bit guys.

All right.

Thank you dan.

He asked and they listened after a request from president trump lockheed martin has decided to keep its helicopter plant opened in chester county.

But while the closing date is now off the calendar.

It's not clear what comes after that.

>>and our business reporter justin, backover reports from coatesville.

>>the 465 lockheed martin employees in coatesville chester county who thought they would be out of work at the end of the year.

Got a bit of a surprise.

They're staying open.

Donna celts is the executive director of the western chester chamber of commerce.

>>county commissioners.

The job seekers that might have been impacted by the closing in the plant in a statement on twitter lockheed c o marilyn hewson said at the request of president trump i took another look at our decision to close the coatesville p a facility and have decided to keep it open while we pursue additional work.

It's a good operation with an excellent work force we look forward to working with the government and the p a congressional delegation to find more for this facility.

We were hopeful, but i did not have any.

>>clue that they would make this decision that we're very pleased that they did.

>>the president has been pressing the company to stay open tweeting we are very proud of pennsylvania and the people who work there.

Pennsylvania will be key in his reelection campaign.

Senator pat toomey applauded the move while senator bob casey expressed some concerns stating while this announcement is an encouraging first step i am concerned that the announcement lacks a specific plan that brings new work to the coatesville facility that we keep the plant open beyond the next several months the workforce around here is very strong and it's great
