Gulfstream extends its support in Savannah
Gulfstream
Gulfstream's major role has just got bigger. At the end of April, the American aircraft manufacturer announced its intention to build a new service centre in Savannah (Georgia), at Hilton Head international airport. It is due to open in the second quarter of 2019. This means that Gulfstream is strengthening its presence in Savannah a little more, but also its support capacities, with no fewer than four projects launched since the start of the year.

The new service centre, which is to be named Savannah Service Center East, will feature nearly 19 000 m of facilities dedicated to MRO. The facilities will include a hangar, workshops and offices, which will complete Gulfstream's main service centre, which is already installed at the north east of the airport. The aircraft manufacturer will have 93 000 m just to support its fleet in Savannah, not including nearly 3 000 m dedicated to training.

The Savannah Service Center East will strengthen the main centre's capacities for AOG management, airframe inspection, avionics installation and cabin renovation. Its opening should enable the creation of 200 jobs. It will require 55 million dollars in investment.

This announcement is part of Gulfstream's declared strategy to extend its capabilities. Since the start of the year, the aircraft manufacturer has already launched the construction of a new service centre at its Appleton (Wisconsin) site, an extension to the operating hours of its Beijing centre with the recruitment of an additional 10 maintenance technicians and inspectors, and the creation of a pole dedicated to AOG processing in Savannah.
