“The age of social media is here and it is strong,” said John Pacelli, Sikorsky Vice President of Marketing. “Our research shows that the number of people who are visiting social media Web sites to stay in touch continues to grow. This is another tool to help us to engage our customers, employees, and the media, to keep them informed and connected to the latest news on our products and services.

Sikorsky plans to promote its company brand but also sees Twitter as a new way to enhance relationships and deliver important news more quickly to our customers and the media.
