Gulfstream Aerospace announced that it will divide its Appleton, Wis. facility into three separate units. The first unit, which will retain the Gulfstream name, will focus on the final phase of manufacturing (completion) of Gulfstream business jets.

The second unit, which will provide maintenance and refurbishment of Raytheon, Bombardier, Dassault and Gulfstream business jets, will operate under the General Dynamics Aviation Services name. The third unit, which will provide product support to in-production Gulfstream business jets, will operate under the Gulfstream Service Center banner.

“Since we acquired the Appleton facility in 1998, it has earned a reputation as both a first-class completions and a first-class aircraft service operation,” said Larry Flynn, president of product support at Gulfstream and president of General Dynamics Aviation Services. “To ensure we retain that hard-earned reputation and provide the best possible service to our customers, we determined that dividing the operation into three distinct units would enable the line management of the respective units to focus on what they do best.”
