DANBURY, CT - Yesterday, Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) toured United Technologies Corporation (UTC) Aerospace Systems in Danbury and held a town hall with employees. UTC Aerospace Systems’ Danbury workforce develops and manufactures electro-optical systems supporting a range of critical missions in space, air, and on the ground, supporting defense, civil, and international markets.

Esty is a member the U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, where she works to support robust federal investments in aerospace and defense industries as well as support STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education to prepare students for 21st century jobs. Recently, Esty’s bipartisan STEM Education Act, which she introduced with Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX), passed the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support.

“UTC Aerospace is a leader in innovative aerospace technology, protecting our national security and supporting thousands of good-paying jobs across Connecticut. Today, I heard directly from hard-working men and women at UTC about the need for a strong, predictable federal partnership to continue to fuel our nation’s first line of defense and expand our country’s competitive edge. As a member of the U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I’m committed to protecting and expanding opportunities for innovation and economic growth in the areas of aerospace and defense, and I look forward to continuing to work with UTC in these efforts,” said Congresswoman Esty.

Madeline Wilczewski, one of the many young engineers in the Danbury UTC facility, commented that developing advanced technologies has provided her significant opportunities to apply her UCONN engineering degree and support national defense and scientific endeavors.

“Congresswoman Esty’s commitment to providing the next generation with a foundation in STEM education will give students the opportunity that I was fortunate enough to experience and apply at my job with UTC. We are extremely proud of what we do and appreciate Congresswoman Esty’s support of the aerospace and defense industry,” said Madeline Wilczewski, UTC Aerospace Systems’ Danbury.
