Bell Helicopter Lands $423M Navy Contract Modification for Lot 14 AH-1Z Production

Textron’s (NYSE: TXT) Bell Helicopter subsidiary has received a potential three-year, $423 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to produce and deliver 25 lot 14 AH-1Z aircraft in support of the U.S. Marine CorpsH-1 upgrade program.

The company will perform work in Fort Worth and Amarillo, Texas, through February 2020 under the modification to a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive contract, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
