Gulfstream opens a new service centre in Wisconsin
While Appleton won't be knocking Oshkosh off its pedestal as Wisconsin's (United States) aviation capital, the site is starting to expand in scale. Gulfstream announced on 16th February that it was strengthening its presence. The American manufacturer will start to build a service centre at Appleton international airport to supports its expanding customer fleet in the region. The foundations are scheduled to be laid in the second quarter of 2018, with the site opening for business one year later.

This new 16 700 m facility will enable Gulfstream to strengthen its MRO capacity in the Midwest and near Canada. It features a hangar, offices and workshops for customer support. The investment costs are estimated at 40 million dollars. Around 200 people should be recruited on site.

Gulfstream has already had a solid base in Appleton since 1998, with 29 300 m of facilities and over 800 employees. The manufacturer has a first service centre there, offering a wide range of MRO services such as major inspections, structural modifications, avionics retrofits and safety improvements. Its teams carried out 582 operations, including some at other airports. The site also features a completion centre for wide-body aircraft.
