Today, jet manufacturer Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation announced plans to build a $25 million, 110,000 square foot maintenance repair facility in Brunswick, Georgia at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport. The new facility will expand the existing Brunswick operations and add 100 new jobs to the area.
Gulfstream President Larry Flynn made the announcement today in Brunswick, Georgia.
“Brunswick played a significant role in what was a record-setting 2013 for our service organization worldwide,” said 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, located about 75 miles south of Gulfstream headquarters in Savannah, has been a company site since 1992. It is home to a service center and completions facility that installs furniture, entertainment systems and other finishing touches to its aircraft. In 2013, Gulfstream Brunswick employees serviced more than 150 aircraft. The service center is a certified U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, European Aviation Safety Agency and Transport Canada repair station.
Gulfstream currently employs approximately 200 workers in Brunswick. The Brunswick expansion is expected to be complete by May, 2015.
The expansion will have a ripple effect throughout the community—including a positive impact on the real estate market. At Hodnett Cooper Real Estate and throughout the community, we are fortunate to have many quality employers that support Glynn County through capital investments, expansion and job creation.
Hodnett Cooper thanks Gulfstream for their dedication to the community. And we congratulate Gulfstream on their continued growth and success!
