Gulfstream to expand Brunswick service center
Gulfstream service center expansion at Brunswick will create 100 addition jobs.
Gulfstream Aerospace has announced that it will expand its service center at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport in Brunswick, Georgia later this year, with an expected completion date of May 2015.
The aircraft manufacturer signed a lease with the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority to develop a $25 million maintenance repair and overhaul facility near its two existing hangars.
“Brunswick played a significant role in what was a record-setting 2013 for our service organisation worldwide,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream Product Support.
“The growth of our fleet has increased the demand for aircraft maintenance and refurbishment,” added Burns. “Expanding in Brunswick keeps us well-positioned to continue to provide the best customer service and product support available.”
Gulfstream Brunswick is located around 75 miles south of the Gulfstream headquarters in Savannah and has been a company site since 1992.
“This expansion would not be possible without the efforts of many, including Governor Nathan Deal and his team at the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Glynn County commissioners, the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority and the Glynn County Airport Commission,” said Jay Neely, vice president of law and public affairs for Gulfstream. “We are very thankful for their support in ensuring this project’s success.”
Governor Deal said: “We are honoured when international companies such as Gulfstream choose to call Georgia home. Our more than 20-year partnership with Gulfstream underscores their faith in our business climate and skilled workforce. This expansion will have a significant economic impact on Brunswick and Glynn County.”
