Facility Needs To Fill Positions To Support More Completions Work
Gulfstream plans to increase employment at its Appleton, WI., facility by approximately 100 positions in the next year to support growing volume in completions work for Gulfstream large-cabin aircraft, including the recently certified G650. The site currently has approximately 725 employees, including nearly 425 technicians.
“With the certification of the G650, Gulfstream Appleton will increase its delivery rates to meet the needs of customers,” said Dennis Stuligross, senior vice president, Operations, Gulfstream, in a Thursday news release. “This increase requires adding jobs ranging from Materials to Engineering positions. With this expansion of the Gulfstream Appleton site, we can further grow our business and help support this great community.”
Gulfstream Appleton is home to a completions center and service center. It has approximately 275,000 square feet of hangar, shop and support space.
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.
Gulfstream Appleton is located at the Outagamie Country Regional Airport (KATW), just 90 miles north of Milwaukee ... not to mention just 20 miles from Oshkosh.
