Bell Helicopter and Cessna Open Asia Pacific Service Facility in Singapore
Bell Helicopter, in partnership with Cessna Aircraft Company, opened a new regional service center in Singapore at Seletar Aerospace Park. The state-of-the-art facility offers comprehensive repair, completion, fulfillment, maintenance and customization solutions.
“The grand opening of our Asia Pacific service center brings to life a vision of providing exceptional support to our current and future customers in this important growth region,” said John L. Garrison, president and CEO of Bell Helicopter. “It is the result of years of planning for an increased presence in Asia Pacific that is a key market for both Bell Helicopter and Cessna.”
Bell Helicopter and the Singapore Economic Development Board signed a memorandum of understanding in June 2010. On June 9, 2011, Bell Helicopter and Cessna broke ground on the new service center in the Seletar Aerospace Park.
The service facility is 160,500 total square feet and equipped with hangars for Bell Helicopter and Cessna products, a paint booth, warehouse, overhaul and maintenance shops, offices, and a 77,000-square-foot ramp. Plans for the new facility include training, performing customization and completions, major refurbishment projects, labor and parts sales, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul. Bell Helicopter and Cessna envision the center as a regional hub for response to customer needs in Asia Pacific.
“Cessna continues to focus on the full product experience, delivering exceptional end-to-end service,” said Bill Harris, Cessna’s vice president of sales for the Asia Pacific region. “We maintain a worldwide network of Citation Service Centers and Authorized Service Facilities to ensure our customers have access to our industry leading team of skilled professionals throughout the world.”
