Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has completed the expansion of its Savannah, Georgia manufacturing facility. The plant, which produces the Gulfstream G400, Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600, was expanded by 142,000 square feet. According to the company, production methods for the aforementioned models includes advanced automation, 3D model designs and robotic and bonding techniques to help improve quality and precision. The company invested $150 million into the project, which was announced last year, and hopes to create 1,600 new jobs for the surrounding area.
In a recent quote, Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, said, “Gulfstream continues to invest across all our facilities, including in Savannah, our headquarters for more than 50 years. We designed the G400, G500 and G600 to have a number of commonalities that increase both operational and manufacturing efficiencies. Those commonalities mean that we have the flexibility to easily expand production lines to meet the growing demand for these aircraft, which also increases job growth across the region.”
