STATEMENT BY GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR

 

Concerning the EADS North America UH-145 announcement

 

“The addition of this important new manufacturing program to American Eurocopter's existing Columbus operation is a great complement to our burgeoning defense industry, and we welcome production of the Army's new Light Utility Helicopter in Mississippi. Our state's partnerships with outstanding companies such as EADS North America to provide high-tech, high-quality military systems to our men and women in uniform continue to strengthen, and that's a testament to our highly-skilled workforce.”
