Bell will see more helicopter business thanks to a contract supplying AH-1Z Vipers to the Middle East kingdom of Bahrain.
The Navy awarded the contract for $240 million on Thursday. The Department of Defense says about 40 percent of the work on the 12 attack helicopters will be done at the Amarillo plant.
That work is set to be finished by August 2020.
