Two Paulo Divisions Awarded Bell Textron Approval

Paulo is excited to announce that two divisions have been awarded Bell Textron approval. On-site audits (Pre-COVID19) of both the Cleveland and Kansas City Divisions took place resulting in approval to process parts deemed “Primary”, “Critical”, “Flight Safety”, or “Fatigue Controlled” by Bell Textron. Both Paulo locations are eager to begin processing work for Bell and their suppliers.  The two facilities hold Nadcap Merit Status and provide many types of Heat Treatment as well as Brazing and Hot Isostatic Pressing.

Bell Textron, formerly Bell Helicopter, is an aviation leader with years of experience in creating military and commercial helicopters and tiltrotor aircraft. Bell is now leading the way in the areas of urban air mobility and autonomous package delivery.

“Adding a new approval is always exciting, it opens the doors to new customers, and allows us to help our existing customers with parts we previously couldn’t. We’re looking forward to working with Bell and their supply chain on all things thermal processing.” – William Rassieur, VP Sales
