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.”
