Eagle Copters Maintenance (ECM) was this week renamed Bell Textron Australia after Textron bought the company in July last year.
“ECM’s name change to Bell Textron Australia marks a key milestone in our commitment to grow our local aftermarket footprint and service offering in Australia to better serve our Australian customers and to capture new demand in an important market for Bell,” said Chris Schaefer, vice president, Customer Experience, Bell.
“My team and I look forward to deepening the long-term relationships we have in country and to support our leadership team at Bell Textron Australia.”
Bell bought ECM last year to expand their footprint in the Asia-Pacific region, which they believed would enables them to provide local support and solutions to customers in Australia and in Asia-Pacific.
“This name and branding change presents us as part of the Bell organization which affords us the opportunity to offer enhanced and expanded services to support our customers,” said Grant Boyter, director, Bell Textron Australia.
“Moreover, I am pleased to share that the team here remains the same and we look forward to offering the same flexible, focused, quality and service orientated approach for which Eagle is known.”
ECM was founded in 2013 as a joint venture between Canadian Eagle Copters Ltd. and Aero Assist, an Australian company. The company operated maintenance facilities in Coffs Harbour, NSW and Redcliffe, QLD.
