Not all the news this week was datelined Geneva: The Savannah Air Center yesterday said it broke ground for a new hangar facility designed to increase the company’s capacity to accommodate large business aircraft. The under-construction 101,500-square-foot state-of-the-art structure will hold up to six large-cabin aircraft such as the Global Express and Gulfstream V and will include room for staff and customer offices. The new facility will be used primarily for interior completions and maintenance, in which the company specializes. Last year, Savannah Air Center added a new interiors facility to include upholstery, interior fabrication, carpet layout, engineering and various supporting offices. In 2004, a 12,500-square-foot cabinet shop was added, housing state-of-art woodworking equipment, a curing area and a full finishing booth.

“This additional facility is critical to the continued growth of our business,” said Jeff Zacharius, Savannah Air Center’s CEO. “As an authorized completion center for Bombardier Global 5000 and Global Express XRS aircraft, we are actively developing our ‘green’ completion business. The expansion will allow us to efficiently serve these new Bombardier customers while growing our interior refurbishment, avionics and maintenance business for other large cabin aircraft owners. We’re committed to providing our customers the highest quality products and the highest level of service,” added Zacharius. “As our business continues to grow, we will continue to provide the same level of excellence our customers have come to expect.” Established in 1999, Savannah Air Center is located at the Savannah (Ga.) International Airport (KSAV) -- where Gulfstream is based -- and employs a team of 200 dedicated professionals.
