Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. will expand its service center at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport in Brunswick. The company signed a lease with the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority to develop a $25 million, 110,000-square-foot/10,219-square-meter maintenance repair and overhaul facility near its two existing hangars. The expansion is expected to create 100 additional jobs, a 50 percent increase in the size of Gulfstream Brunswick’s current workforce.
“We are honored when international companies such as Gulfstream choose to call Georgia home,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said. “Our more than 20-year partnership with Gulfstream underscores its faith in our business climate and skilled workforce. This expansion will have a significant economic impact on Brunswick and Glynn County.”
Groundbreaking is slated for later this year. Construction is scheduled to be completed by May 2015.
“Brunswick played a significant role in what was a record-setting 2013 for our service organization worldwide,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “The growth of our fleet has increased the demand for aircraft maintenance and refurbishment. Expanding in Brunswick keeps us well-positioned to continue to provide the best customer service and product support available.”
