Gulfstream cuts ribbon for new ‘East Campus’ maintenance facility

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Gulfstream opened its new maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Savannah.

The Gulfstream "East Campus" is a new maintenance facility with 200,000 additional square feet of customer support-dedicated space. The facility is on the east side of Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

It was built with an investment of more than $55 million.

"We built this facility because our service business continues to grow it's really integral to our ability to support our customers, so we sell airplanes all over the world but it's just as important that we provide exceptional service for their airplane and maintenance and the opportunity to upgrade their airplane,” Gulfstream President Mark Burns said.

“This expansion by Gulfstream, we know it’s going to create jobs and opportunities for hardworking Georgians, not only in Chatham County, but around this whole area,” said Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp. “Mark and I were talking about earlier about just how much our aerospace program continues to boom, and that’s something that I talk about a lot.”

Congressman Buddy Carter was also present for the ribbon cutting.
