By Helicopters Staff
Bell Textron Inc., announced the opening of its Bell Commercial Business Center (CBC), located in a former American Airlines building approximately seven miles away from both Bell’s headquarters and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
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, Commercial Business and Technology innovation. “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.”
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 (MTC) allows Bell to accommodate for the growth that is expected to come with supporting the U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) programs.
