Gulfstream Aerospace will expand and renovate its Appleton, Wisconsin, facility’s completions operations, further enhancing the creation and installation of award-winning Gulfstream aircraft interiors. The expansion will ultimately create more than 200 new jobs.

“This expansion is another effort in our long-range plan to upgrade and modernize Gulfstream facilities to further support our customers,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Enhancing the Appleton completions operations is in line with Gulfstream’s culture of continuous improvement and will allow the craftspeople who create Gulfstream’s award-winning aircraft interiors to build on the excellence they already deliver.”

The Appleton completions hangar expansion and renovation are part of a collaborative partnership with Appleton International Airport (ATW) and will increase the current space by more than 13,000 square feet/1,208 square meters, bringing the total completions space to 126,500 sq ft/11,752 sq m. The project will enrich safety, quality and efficiency and includes:

  • An upgraded furniture finishing shop to house Gulfstream artisans and the hand-crafted furnishings they build for each customer aircraft
  • Consolidated completions backshops to improve workflow efficiencies
  • Upgraded shipping and receiving capabilities to increase safety, capacity and efficiency
  • Upgraded HVAC systems to increase sustainable operations
  • The project is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2021 and complements the expansion of Gulfstream Customer Support’s nearby maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in 2019.
