Gulfstream Opens Additional Maintenance Hangar In Brunswick, GA

New Facility Expected To Bring 100 Jobs And Doubles Site's Aircraft Capacity

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has officially expanded its service center in Brunswick, Georgia, with the opening of a newly constructed hangar. The hangar has been fully operational since May 29, 2015.

The nearly 110,000-square-foot hangar at Brunswick Golden Isles Airport complements an adjacent Gulfstream maintenance facility and completions center. The new building accommodates all Gulfstream aircraft models and more than doubles the site’s under-roof capacity from a mixture of seven large-cabin aircraft to as many as 16. The expansion, which was announced in January 2014, has resulted in more than 60 new jobs at the site. Approximately 40 more positions are expected to be added this year.

“This is a very exciting day for Brunswick, Glynn County and Gulfstream,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “This hangar is a tremendous asset to our operation here, helping us enhance the reliability and availability of our aircraft, continue to maintain a high level of safety and provide a state-of-the-art workplace for our employees. We’re thankful to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Glynn County commissioners, the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority, and the Glynn County Airport Commission for their essential support.”

Gulfstream announced the hangar opening before an audience comprised of most of the site’s 250 employees along with local dignitaries, including the Glynn County commissioners, Brunswick Mayor Cornell Harvey and Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority Interim Director Mel Baxter.

Gulfstream Brunswick, located approximately 75 miles south of Savannah and 60 miles north of Jacksonville, Florida, offers a full range of maintenance services, including aircraft-on-ground support, airframe inspections, avionics installations and interior refurbishments. On-site technicians are certified to work on Gulfstream G550, G450, G280, GV, GIV and GIII aircraft. The site is also home to a completions facility for Gulfstream large-cabin aircraft.

Brunswick’s new hangar includes two overhead cranes and a tail dock. It was constructed with several sustainable and green design features, such as recycled content, water-saving lavatories and showers, energy-efficient indoor/outdoor lighting and heating/cooling systems, and preferred parking spaces for low-emission, fuel-efficient vehicles.

Gulfstream Brunswick is certified as a maintenance facility by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency, and is also authorized by Transport Canada.

In 2014, Brunswick employees serviced more than 130 aircraft.
