The Bell Company is a privately-owned printing and engraving company with 25 employees located at 8327 Parkway Drive in Leeds.

The company was founded in 1946 by Horace Bell, who had served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. In the 1950s and 1960s Bell secured several government contracts. By 1964 the business had outgrown Bell's home and moved to its long time location at 106 Morrow Avenue in Trussville. During the 1970s the company moved into wholesaling engraving supplies, issuing its first catalog in 1974, and expanding its reach nationally and internationally. Horace's son, Neil took over the company in 1982. He oversaw the expansion of the business into signage, including ADA-compliant printing and signage for the visually impaired. Since 2017, the business is headed by Neil's son Chris.

The company relocated to Leeds in 2018 when its long-time home was purchased for expansion of the Trussville Entertainment District.
