Bell Textron, a Textron company, is ready with its state-of-the-art Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) and has announced start of operations at it. Bell broke ground on the facility on August 2020 and expects it to be fully operational later this year. The centre will be used to test and refine technologies and processes for Future Vertical Lift aircraft.

The company celebrated the start of operations at MTC with a small gathering and ribbon cutting ceremony. Bell leaders and employees as well as local North Texas community leaders, including Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, were in attendance. This event marks the next milestone in the centre’s development before its grand opening, targeted for summer 2021.

“Through the Manufacturing Technology Centre, we can showcase how we will deliver the most affordable, capable and reliable aircraft for the warfighter,” said Mitch Snyder, president and CEO, Bell. “As we work together to define the next generation of Bell products, it’s been gratifying to watch this new facility become a reality.”

The MTC is an innovative proving ground where Bell plans to test and refine technologies and processes and demonstrate readiness and ability to successfully build and support Future Vertical Lift aircraft and other new products. It offers a digitally connected space for collaboration between Bell teams in an environment that promotes smart risk taking. New systems will be tested and vetted for production suitability before being introduced to Bell’s future factories.
