Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company (NYSE: TXT), announced today it has delivered four Bell aircraft into Mexico – three Bell 412s and the first Bell 429 into Mexico earlier this year.
The three Bell 412s were delivered to Heliservicio Campeche to support its oil & gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Bell Helicopter received the order at the 2011 Heli-Expo in Orlando earlier this year.
Heliservicio currently operates a fleet of 22 Bell 412â€™s, with a total of 31 Bell aircraft â€“ all of which are maintained by Servicio Tecnico Aereo de Mexico, the Bell Helicopter platinum-level Certified Service Facility for Mexico.
â€œThe Bell 412 is the workhorse in our fleet and meets the demands of our oil and gas operations with excellent dependability,â€ said Alfredo Miguel Bejos, CEO of Heliservicio Campeche.
Earlier this year, Bell Helicopter delivered a Bell 429 to the State of Chihuahua for corporate transport.
â€œBell Helicopter has a strong presence in Mexico with many long-term partnerships in Latin America,â€ said Larry D. Roberts, senior vice president for Bell Helicopterâ€™s Commercial business.
â€œThe Bell 412 has had tremendous success in the region especially in the oil & gas industry. It is well-known for its reliability and multi-mission capabilities.
â€œWe are confident the Bell 429 will also be as widely accepted by our customers in Mexico,â€ he said.
