A new service center will expand Gulfstream’s facility at Appleton International Airport in Wisconsin. The build should begin in the second quarter of 2018, with operations to begin in the second quarter of 2019. The investment totals approximately US$40m.
Currently, Gulfstream Appleton includes a service center and large-cabin completions facility, spread over more than 315,500ft². The expansion will see the development of an MRO nearly 180,000ft² in size – incorporating a hangar, offices, back shops and support space.
The expansion will create approximately 200 jobs, bringing the total employed at the site to more than 1,000.
“This is the most significant expansion we’ve had in Appleton in the nearly 20 years we’ve been there,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support.
“The demand for our outstanding service business is growing, so this added maintenance capacity and additional jobs are great news for our customers and the community. These added resources will further enhance the world-class service and support this site is known for in the industry.”
