‘We Have To Put the Foundation in Place to Ensure we can be
  President and Chief Executive Officer, Bell Helicopter, John Garrison
I am actually on a several weeks’ tour of this region. I started from Singapore. We are planning to open a new facility in Singapore middle of next year, in collaboration with our sister company Cessna. After that, I spent several days at the Dubai Air Show where our helicopters V-22, 429 and 407 debuted. In fact, we had a very successful pace of meetings on those platforms.
Following this, I spent several days in India. The primary purpose for my visit to India is the Bell Helicopter, which is committed to the Indian market. We view this as a significant growth opportunity for Bell Helicopter. We are focussed on Bell for growing our military and commercial business as well as our customer service and support business. In India, there is an opportunity for all three segments of our business to grow. I started my India visit with Bangalore because we are making a significant investment in Bangalore with our parent company called Textron. At Textron Global Technology Centre, we opened a brand new office facility which is going to house about 400 of our engineers. Significant percentage of those would be Bell. We intend to double the number of engineers in the next 12 months. Therefore, we are making a substantial investment in our Global Technology Centre. This technology is not just for the Indian market, we are utilising these resources for the global market.
