Brunswick Expansion to Include 100 Jobs and New Hangar
For the second time in three years, Gulfstream has expansion plans for its site in Brunswick, Georgia. On January 21, 2014, before employees and local and state dignitaries, Gulfstream announced the signing of a lease with the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority to develop a US$25 million, 110,000-square-foot/10,219-square-meter maintenance repair and overhaul facility near its two existing hangars at Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (ICAO: KBQK). The new building is expected to create 100 additional jobs, a 50 percent increase in the size of Gulfstream Brunswick’s current workforce.
Construction is scheduled to be completed by May 2015.
The latest news from Brunswick came just after the site added 35 jobs to support more completions work.
“Brunswick played a significant role in what was a record-setting 2013 for our service organization worldwide,” says Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “The growth of our fleet has increased the demand for aircraft maintenance and refurbishment. Expanding in Brunswick keeps us well-positioned to continue to provide the best customer service and product support available.”
Gulfstream Brunswick’s new maintenance facility will have 73,000 square feet/6,782 square meters of hangar space, while the remaining space will be used for offices, back shops and parts storage.
Gulfstream Brunswick, a company site since 1992, is located approximately 75 miles/121 kilometers south of Gulfstream headquarters in Savannah, Georgia.
