The long-established aerospace leader expands its offerings in Canada

Mirabel, Canada - Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today a new maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service in its Mirabel, Canada facility.

The increasing demand for customer support and services in North America prompted Bell to provide MRO services directly to all operators of Bell aircraft in Canada. The Mirabel facility provides these services to a range of aircraft, from the Bell 206 – Bell’s first commercial aircraft produced in country – to the commercial aircraft currently being produced .

"We are proud to offer this new capability in our Mirabel facility for our customers,” said Steeve Lavoie, president of Bell Textron Canada Ltd. “We have been in Mirabel for 35 years, conducting composite, final assembly, completion and paint capabilities in our facility, along with technical and product support engineering on site. As the demand for maintenance increased, it became clear that we had the opportunity to enhance support for our customers.”

Since entering the Canadian market in 1986, Bell has become a key player in the Canadian helicopter market, supporting the Canadian Coast Guard, the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Sûreté du Québec and private owners in North America. Bell has produced more than 5,600 commercial aircraft, which are operating around the world.

“Bell is known worldwide for its industry-leading support and services. Our customers are our priority, and we will continue to listen and focus on providing them with an excellent experience throughout the lifetime of their aircraft, right here in Canada,” said Chad Nimrick, director, Support and Services at Bell.


Thinking above and beyond is what we do. For more than 80 years, we’ve been reimagining the experience of flight – and where it can take us.

We are pioneers. We were the first to break the sound barrier and to certify a commercial helicopter. We were aboard NASA’s first lunar mission and brought advanced tiltrotor systems to market. Today, we’re defining the future of on-demand mobility.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron Inc., – we have strategic locations around the globe. And with nearly one quarter of our workforce having served, helping our military achieve their missions is a passion of ours.

Above all, our breakthrough innovations deliver exceptional experiences to our customers. Efficiently. Reliably. And always, with safety at the forefront.
