200 more job losses at Bell
Bell Helicopter will reduce its Mirabel workforce by 200 in March. The company has now cut 700 jobs since the Summer 2014.
The latest round of job losses will come from both production and administrative functions.
Bell’s deliveries in 2015 remained flat. LongRanger IV production was down slightly from 13 to 12, while the 407 model was up from 86 to 99.
The company delivered one less 429 in 2015, however the 412 saw deliveries drop by just over half.
Bell also changed its president, with Raymond Leduc leaving in January after just 13 months.
