Gulfstream Aerospace completed its latest strategic expansion - Savannah-based precision manufacturing facility for the Gulfstream G400, Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600. This expansion increases the facility’s capacity by 142,000 square feet/13,192 square meters. Production methods for the G400, G500 and G600 were designed with Gulfstream Savannah-based research and development team and include advanced automation, 3D model designs and robotic and bonding techniques that result in unprecedented quality and precision.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented: “Gulfstream continues to invest across all our facilities, including in Savannah, our headquarters for more than 50 years. We designed the G400, G500 and G600 to have a number of commonalities that increase both operational and manufacturing efficiencies. Those commonalities mean that we have the flexibility to easily expand production lines to meet the growing demand for these aircraft, which also increases job growth across the region. The technological advancements in our state-of-art manufacturing facilities help us deliver the highest quality product in the industry, built by the industry’s most talented workforce.” 

This manufacturing growth is part of Gulfstream’s overall strategic plan that in Savannah includes expansions of wing and empennage production as well as the Customer Support service center. These latest investments total $150 million and are expected to add 1,600 new jobs to the region. In addition to the Savannah expansions, Gulfstream has increased aircraft outfitting capabilities in Appleton, Wisconsin, and at St. Louis Downtown Airport in Illinois, and continues to expand Customer Support operations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Mesa, Arizona.
