United Tech to shed Siko­rsky

Los Angeles Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

United Tech­nolo­gies Corp. said it is shed­ding he­li­copter maker Siko­rsky Air­craft as it fo­cuses on high­tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts for the aerospace and build­ing in­dus­tries.

Hart­ford, Conn.-based United Tech­nolo­gies said sev­eral months ago that it was launch­ing a strate­gic re­view of op­tions for Siko­rsky, which it said was no longer a good fit in its port­fo­lio.

Siko­rsky man­u­fac­tures the Black Hawk he­li­copter and pres­i­den­tial he­li­copters. Siko­rsky he­li­copters also have played a role in re­turn­ing astro­nauts home af­ter they splashed down in the Pa­cific Ocean at the end of their space trav­els.
