Bell Textron Inc has announced the opening of the Bell Commercial Business Center (CBC) in Fort Worth, Texas.
The new facility will be located at a former American Airlines building approximately seven miles away from Bell’s Headquarters and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The Center will house approximately 600 Bell employees including all Commercial Programmes, Global Sales, Customer Support and Services as well as supporting business functions, Supply Chain, Information Technology, Human Resources and Finance personnel.
Expansion will create “space for employees to innovate”
Michael Thacker, executive vice president, Commercial Business and Technology innovation said: “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. 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.”
The facility expansion is in addition to planned renovations at Bell’s Headquarter campus in Fort Worth, along with Bell’s previously announced Manufacturing Technology Center (MTC). The centres will enable Bell to accommodate for the expected growth of supporting the US Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) programmes.
