Gulfstream Aerospace is expanding and renovating its completions facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, as part of a larger effort to modernize its facilities and enhance customer support.
The Savannah, Georgia-based airframer will add more than 13,000 sq ft to its completions hangar at Appleton International Airport, bringing the facility to 126,500 sq ft. The improvements will also include upgrading the furniture finishing shop, consolidating completions back shops for improving workflow, and enhancing the shipping and receiving areas as well as HVAC systems. Along with the expansion, Gulfstream expects to add 200 new jobs.
“This expansion is another effort in our long-range plan to upgrade and modernize Gulfstream facilities to further support our customers,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “Enhancing the Appleton completions operations is in line with Gulfstream’s culture of continuous improvement.”
Gulfstream expects the project to be completed in the third quarter. This follows a previous expansion of the Appleton MRO facility just two years ago.
