Gulfstream Aerospace announced plans to increase employment at its Appleton, Wis., facility by approximately 100 positions in the next year. The hiring boom is designed to support the growing volume of completions work for Gulfstream large-cabin aircraft, including the recently certified G650.
Gulfstream Appleton has approximately 275,000 sq ft of hangar, shop and support space and currently employs approximately 725 employees, including nearly 425 technicians. The company is looking at hiring people with skills ranging from materials to engineering positions. Completions work includes the design, selection and installation of the cabin configuration and layout, furniture, seats, carpets and sidewall treatments, entertainment and communication systems, and galley and lavatory fixtures.
“When it comes to hiring employees, Gulfstream has a tradition of looking to the local community first. That said, our recruiters travel around the country to find the right candidates to fill job openings. Jobs are traditionally filled via our website,” a Gulfstream spokesperson told AIN. “We began filling these jobs late last year and expect to fill the remainder within the first quarter of this year.”
