Gulfstream Aerospace will expand completions operations at its St Louis Downtown airport facility in Illinois. The expansion will increase production of custom cabinetry and exterior paint capacity for Gulfstream's in-demand large cabin aircraft.

To support this expansion, Gulfstream St Louis will grow its workforce in the areas of cabinet makers and finishers, upholsterers, aircraft paint technicians, manufacturing engineers, operations engineers, certification inspectors and additional support functions.

“We are seeing an extraordinary amount of activity across our sites to support Gulfstream's current and future fleet, including customers new to business aviation and long time customers looking to redesign their existing aircraft,” says president Mark Burns. “As we strategically expand our service network, we are also increasing capacity for components of new aircraft at sites like St Louis that have already been producing world-class interior furnishings for Gulfstream customer support.”

Formerly operating under the Jet Aviation brand, the Gulfstream St Louis service centre opened in 2017 as a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility and comprises 11 hangars and more than 637,457 sq ft/59,222 sqm of shop and support space. Gulfstream St Louis is a certified US FAA and EASA Part 145 repair station. Employees there can service large cabin and midcabin aircraft registered in the US and European Union countries.
