Beginning in November 2020, Bell’s CBC will house approximately 600 Bell employees including all Commercial Programs, Global Sales, Customer Support and Services as well as supporting business functions, Supply Chain, Information Technology, Human Resources and Finance personnel.
“As we continue to expand our footprint in Fort Worth, it is important we create a space for our employees to innovate and think creatively,” said Michael Thacker, Executive Vice-President. “Having a dedicated facility for Commercial Business will allow enhanced collaboration throughout the entire enterprise and support Bell’s vision to continue to advance the future of mobility and vertical flight.”
Accommodating for Bell’s expected growth
In addition to planned renovations at Bell’s Headquarter campus in Fort Worth, this facility expansion, along with Bell’s previously announced Manufacturing Technology Center, allows Bell to accommodate for the growth that is expected to come with supporting the US Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft and Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft programs.
Recently, Bell Flight opened its first Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC) in Europe. The new AMC provides maintenance for the Bell 505 and Bell 407 and is located near downtown Warsaw in Konstancin-Jeziorna, Poland.
