This is great news for Textron. Maybe they can power the new buildings with solar and wind technology. I wish them the best with their latest project.

This has to be great news for some in Lowell because some Lowell people work there.

What a difference a year makes! Facility expansion at Wilmington has been postponed indefinately and the company has drastically reduced its employee headcount. Bad times for TDS in Wilmington.
