Gulfstream Aerospace is investing more than $55 million in its Appleton, Wisconsin facility following the addition of new facilities in Fort Worth, Texas and Mesa, Arizona, as well as its customer support call centre in Farnborough, UK.

“Gulfstream continues to make significant investments across the company to address both current demand and future growth in our completions and customer support operations,” says president Mark Burns. “The investment in our Appleton facility is a key part of our overall strategy to provide our customers with industry leading completions and support worldwide.”

The company is also hiring for more than 200 new positions at the location, where it is constructing an aircraft paint facility that is set to begin operations in the third quarter of 2023.

“We are in a period of rapid growth and are currently hiring for a wide range of positions. We have openings for engineers, mechanics, avionics technicians and highly skilled trade and craftspeople. Gulfstream offers excellent training to assist in starting a new career in aviation,” says vice president of completions LD Buerger. “Gulfstream creates the world's finest business aircraft, designed and outfitted with beautiful interiors. We are excited about this expansion and the opportunity to recruit and hire new talent to join the Gulfstream team at our Appleton facility.”

The custom-designed, 73,000 sq ft facility uses a proprietary paint booth design developed by Gulfstream in conjunction with Wisconsin-based paint booth manufacturer Global Finishing Solutions. There will be space to paint up to 48 aircraft per year, allowing Gulfstream to perform the entire aircraft completions process start-to-finish in Appleton.

The company has recently made several enhancements to the facility such as a new office area for completions customers and pilots, a new wood finishing area, an upgraded shipping and receiving area, and a completions hangar featuring an employee entrance, break room and lockers.
