Gulfstream expands Brunswick Service Center

Gulfstream Aerospace will expand its service center at Brunswick Golden Isles Airport in Brunswick, Ga. The company signed a lease with the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority to develop a $25 million, 110,000-sq-ft maintenance, repair and overhaul facility near its two existing hangars. The new facility will include a 73,000-sq-ft hangar that will accommodate six to nine large-cabin aircraft.

The expansion is expected to create 100 jobs, a 50-percent gain on Gulfstream Brunswick’s current workforce.

Groundbreaking is slated for later this year, in time for completion by May next year.A spokeswoman for Gulfstream told AIN, “The Brunswick facility is a final-phase completion center and a service center for our large-cabin aircraft.

Today’s announcement does not impact our completion capacity but will expand our maintenance capacity.” The service center is a certified FAA, EASA and Transport Canada repair station.

“Brunswick played a significant role in what was a record-setting 2013 for our service organization worldwide,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream Product Support. “The growth of our fleet has increased the demand for aircraft maintenance and refurbishment.”
