Bell Engineering was founded in 1964 as a small machine shop. Over the years, Bell grew from humble beginnings to over 29,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space, and specializing in providing high-precision prototype parts to the aerospace and automotive industries.

In 2000, Kenneth Bess joined Bell Engineering as General Manager, and was quickly made President in 2002. Under Ken’s leadership, Bell expanded capabilities in CNC milling, turning, and EDM to keep pace with customers looking for the very best prototype parts and low-volume production solutions.

In 2016, Ken and his wife Kimberly bought Bell Engineering, and today it is run as a proud family business. Not ones to settle for the status quo, Bell continues to update and add new capabilities to better service customers across the aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, and material processing industries. Most recently, Bell has expanded into Additive Manufacturing, offering Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) across a wide range of metals.

Bell Engineering specializes in providing high-precision, high-quality prototype parts and low-volume production runs. Bell Engineering is large enough to offer capabilities not available at most other machine shops, but is small enough to react quickly to customer needs, and provide them the attention they deserve.
