Posted: Updated:
BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) -

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. is expanding its service center at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport in Brunswick. 

The company signed a contract with the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority to build a $25 million, 110,000-square-foot maintenance repair and overhaul facility near its two existing hangers. 

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal says the expansion is expected to bring 100 new jobs to the area, which is a 50-percent increase in employees at the current center. 

"We are honored when international companies such as Gulfstream choose to call Georgia home," stated Governor Deal in a news release. "Our more than 20-year partnership with Gulfstream underscores its faith in our business climate and skilled workforce. This expansion will have a significant economic impact on Brunswick and Glynn County."

The building is expected to be completed by May 2015.
