HURST - Bell Helicopter has begun moving into its newly completed $40 million headquarters building as key part of a larger consolidation that will bring 5,000 Dallas-Fort Worth employees — and ultimately its iconic helicopters — to its Hurst corporate campus.

The redevelopment of the 1950s-era corporate campus is part of a multiyear, $1.2 billion investment into research and development, buildings and business systems to help modernize the company and attract top talent.

By the time Bell moves its helicopter maintenance and flight school to the Hurst campus from AllianceTexas by spring 2015, the company will reduce its North Texas footprint by 38 percent, which will save the company $20 million each year, said Robert Hastings Jr., Bell Helicopter's senior vice president of communications and government affairs.

The building includes a 6,300-sf conference center, as well as about 50 different types of conference and breakout rooms throughout the facility.

About 450 employees from Roanoke and AllianceTexas already have moved into the new headquarters building.

The remaining corporate employees will move from the old headquarters building into the new facility in small-group phases with the C-level suite making the last move into the building in May.
