Gulfstream expands Savannah MRO base



Gulfstream has continued the expansion of its Gulfstream Customer Support Savannah-based MRO facility at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

The $99m second phase of the expansion will create 250 new jobs and adds 200,000sq ft (18,580sq m) of space to the centre.

Once completed early next year, the facility will add more resources including scheduled routine inspections, avionics installations, interior refurbishments and aircraft on ground services.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream said the expansion is required to support the growing demand for the OEM’s fleet around the world. He added: “Continued investments in state-of-the-art products, modern customer support facilities and our communities set Gulfstream apart in our industry.”

This second phase adds to the two existing Savannah-based Gulfstream service centres, the most recent of which opened in 2019.

Last month, the OEM opened its new US West Coast Sales and Design Center in Beverly Hills, California.
