Due to Brexit, Gulfstream has decided to cross the North Sea and set up in the Netherlands. On 4th December, the American aircraft manufacturer announced the opening of a new European spare parts distribution centre for customer support near Amsterdam. Based next to Schiphol airport, it replaces the British centre at London-Heathrow. This centre had been inaugurated in 2014.

For several months now, Gulfstream has been organising the transfer of its stocks to the Netherlands, in order to keep them within the European Union. The manufacturer intends to keep supporting its business jets based on the Continent without needing to deal with the formalities and extra customs costs which will apply after the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

Nearly 20 million dollars' worth of spare parts have already been moved to this new 2 300m² facility. The objective is to achieve a stock worth 28 million dollars by the end of the year. To do so, Gulfstream is using the British company Crane Worldwide Logistics, which is in charge of logistics and is supplying the storage warehouses.

However, Gulfstream is keeping its London-Luton service centre, which will provide maintenance for its aircraft based in the United Kingdom. It has a stock of 45 million dollars' worth of parts.
