Gulfstream Aerospace added another European parts distribution center to its product support network. The Corjet Europe facility in Madrid, Spain, will serve as a strategic parts distribution facility for high-usage items commonly required by Gulfstream customers. Located at Madrid Barajas Airport, the facility currently holds almost $4 million in Gulfstream parts, with plans for expansion this year. Corjet Europe will support maintenance operations at five satellite service centers and one parts facility, including the Gulfstream-owned London-Luton Service Center in the UK; the MetroJet maintenance facility in Hong Kong; the Jet Aviation maintenance facilities in Dubai, Moscow and Singapore; and the Morro Vermelho Táxi Aéreo parts center in São Paulo. Dirk Baber, a 22-year Gulfstream veteran, will serve as the onsite materials and warehouse manager in Madrid, marking the first time Gulfstream has placed a materials manager on-site at a non-Gulfstream-owned parts distribution center.

The company has also established a team in Savannah, Ga., dedicated solely to monitoring and replenishing the Madrid-based stock. Corjet Europe joined the Gulfstream product support network as an authorized warranty repair facility last year.
