Sen. Carper issues statement on ruling in Fisker bankruptcy case

Today, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper issued the following statement on the court’s ruling in Fisker Automotive’s bankruptcy case:


“On behalf of the people of Delaware, I want to thank the court for its decision,” said U.S. Sen. Tom Carper. “The loss of both of Delaware’s auto assembly plants within months of each other five years ago was gut-wrenching for me and many Delawareans. The judge’s decision does not ensure that the Boxwood Road plant will come back to life in a few years to produce breathtakingly beautiful, energy efficient automobiles. What it does mean, however, is that Wanxiang America, Inc., a Chinese company with strong financial resources, business operations in 14 states, and a deep interest in reopening the Boxwood Road plant, will now have a fighting chance to make that happen.”
