Scott’s – Bell 47, Inc. Growth Continues With New Facility

Minnesota Company Has Been Adding Employees

Scott’s – Bell 47, Inc. (SB47), newly established OEM for the Model 47 helicopter, have confirmed their move into a new facility sized for their expanding team of employees. The 8,000 sq ft facility was upgraded in March/April to accommodate an expanded design, supply chain & quality assurance team and with an eye to their future business development plans.

SB47 has also invested in state of the art 3D design software to support their PMA design process and to prepare for re-tooling and re-design under a Production Certificate should the need develop as planned.

“SB47 spare parts inventory will continue to reside at what is now our satellite facility, adjacent to Scott’s Helicopter Services.” stated Neil Marshall, SB47 General Manager. “However, this new facility has been planned and upgraded with aircraft re-work in mind and if that starts as planned next year then parts warehousing will be transferred here permanently.”
