Amarillo City Commission Approves 22 Million for Bell Expansion

A 22 million dollar expansion for Amarillo's Bell Helicopter plant is approved by Amarillo City Commissioners today.

That means, a 176 thousand square foot expansion of an assembly building will be funded by the Amarillo Economic Development corporation.

Bell Helicopter officials say the expansion of this facility is necessary for the increased assembly and delivery of the V-22 Osprey, the H-1 Huey, and the Cobra helicopters.
