Gulfstream to add 200 Georgia jobs

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., will invest $55 million and add 200 jobs in an expansion of its jet service center operations in Savannah, Ga.

Gulfstream located its headquarters in Savannah in 1967 and has since grown from 100 local employees to more than 16,000 employees on six continents.

"This expansion is the result of the strong and steady fleet growth we've had for several years and the arrival of our new Gulfstream G500 and G600 in the coming months," Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream, said in an announcement of the expansion Tuesday. "These new facilities will keep us well-positioned for support, maintenance and refurbishment of the Gulfstream fleet, which is now at nearly 2,700 aircraft and continues to grow."

Gulfstream's headquarters in Savannah includes facilities for manufacturing, research and development, maintenance, sales and support. Located at the site of Savannah's former airport terminal, the expansion will include an additional maintenance hangar, customer tower, and a hangar support area with office and shop space.
