Gulfstream held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility last Friday. The facility, called the Gulfstream East Campus, is located at the company’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, on the east side of Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV). According to Gulfstream, it undertook the project in order to accommodate fleet growth.
“We are very excited about this expansion, which follows the recent entry into service of our two all-new aircraft, the Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600,” said Gulfstream President Mark Burns. “To help ensure those aircraft and the rest of our growing fleet continue to have the best service and support in the industry, we built and staffed this fabulous facility.”
Services offered at the new 202,000-square-foot facility include aircraft-on-ground resources, hourly and calendar-driven airframe inspections, avionics installations and interior refurbishments. Gulfstream says it expects to employ an additional 200 people at the Gulfstream East Campus in customer support-related position over the next several years. The $55 million project was announced in April 2018.
