BELL HELICOPTER - THE COMPANY

Founded in 1935 as Bell Aircraft Corporation, Bell continues to set the pace for the industry and expand the scope of vertical lift. Now an industry leader with unmatched name recognition, Bell Helicopter was the first to obtain certification for a commercial helicopter. Over its rich history, Bell has delivered more than 35,000 aircraft to our customers around the world.

With forward thinking in advanced concepts, Bell Helicopter invented tilt rotor aircraft. These unique aircraft lift like a helicopter, then fly like an airplane with twice the speed, three times the payload and five times the range of traditional helicopters. Aerospace and aircraft will never be the same.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Bell Helicopter has additional plants in Amarillo, Texas and Mirabel, Canada. We maintain key logistics supply and service centers in Europe, Canada, and Singapore as well as in the United States. As the world’s premier provider of vertical lift aircraft, Bell Helicopter continues to provide every customer with products, service and support second to none.

    Pros

    Bell is a well-known name in the industry, with proven products. They have made much-needed facilities upgrades in the past few years and are also updating some of their core business processes.

    Cons

    They may have waited too long to make business process changes. Having unions hinders some of the needed process updates, as some workers would be required to learn new ways of doing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to making the right changes, rip off the band-aids, and give the changes time to work. Banish the "this is the way we've always done it" mindset that is prevalent in many areas and at many levels. Reward new ideas and commit to improving your people.
