Welcome new Gulfstream Customer Support service center at the U.K.’s Farnborough Airport has opened for business. The facility’s first aircraft is a Middle East-based Gulfstream G450™ arriving for scheduled maintenance. The all-new 225,000-square-foot/20,903-square-meter facility can easily accommodate up to 13 large-cabin aircraft, including the Gulfstream G650™, G650ER™ and the new industry flagship Gulfstream G700™. Gulfstream Farnborough offers maintenance, repair and overhaul services, as well as interior refurbishments and after-market modifications.

“Gulfstream Farnborough is already seeing great demand,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “This opening marks the completion of another goal in our overarching strategy to enhance convenience and increase options for our customers. The new facilities we are building can better accommodate more of the increasingly popular large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft our customers are flying around the world.” 

In line with Gulfstream’s sustainability strategy, the Farnborough facility has been designed with environmental benefits, including rainwater harvesting, radiant heating systems in the purpose-built hangar, intelligent lighting controls and heat recovery systems. The building is also expected to achieve a “Very Good” Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating.

To complement the Farnborough site, Gulfstream’s FAST™ Field & Airborne Support Teams continue to maintain a presence at London Luton Airport for arrivals, departures and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) service.

In addition to Farnborough, Gulfstream Customer Support has expanded throughout the US with new facilities in Savannah; Appleton, Wisconsin; Van Nuys, California; and forthcoming in Palm Beach, Florida. In February, the company announced an upcoming expansion in Fort Worth, Texas.
