Sikorsky Aircraft is laying off 150 workers, including 109 Connecticut employees, the firm’s corporate parent Lockheed Martin has announced.

“Although difficult, this action is necessary to ensure we remain competitive in the marketplace, secure future business opportunities and keep our infrastructure appropriately aligned with customer demands,” said spokesman Paul Jackson, who said those laid off on Aug. 30 received severance packages.

Sikorsky employs about 8,000 workers in the state, both at its Stratford headquarters and in Trumbull and Shelton.

The move follows a July announcement that 350 employees in Lockheed’s mission system and training area would be losing their jobs, though none of those were in Connecticut.
