Bell Helicopter has opened a new paint facility and delivery center at its site in Prague, Czech Republic, providing full aircraft completion and delivery capabilities to its European customers.
“Bell Helicopter’s continued investment in the region reinforces our commitment to our European customers to provide an in-region facility that offers the industry-leading service and support we are known for worldwide,” said Glenn Isbell, executive vice president, customer support and services, Bell Helicopter. “We are continually assessing our service capabilities to find innovative solutions to best meet our customers’ mission requirements.”
The facility provides full MRO capabilities and is the company’s official regional customization, delivery and aftermarket service center in Europe – complemented by Bell Helicopter’s support and service network throughout the region.
“We are excited that that we have added full paint and delivery capabilities, with the installation of two brand new paint booths and a new delivery center on-site,” said Joachim Goldenberg, general manager for Bell Helicopter in Prague. “Our customers demand excellence and we are working hard to exceed their expectations.”
The new paint booths are designed to accommodate all Bell Helicopter commercial products, ranging from legacy models to those currently in development. Bell Helicopter also says it has integrated the latest requirements for safety of operations, ease of maintenance, energy sustainability, and environmental and ergonomic factors.
