Gulfstream Aerospace announced this week it’s closing its service and completions facility in Long Beach, California. The move is part of a series of long-range facility modernization investments launched last year with construction of a new facility in Van Nuys just 45 miles from the Long Beach location. The Van Nuys Airport is home to Gulfstream’s West Coast Customer Support Distribution Center. Gulfstream will close the Long Beach facility over six months, and shift service work to Van Nuys and completions work to facilities in Savannah, Georgia, and Appleton, Wisconsin.
Enhancing The Customer Experience
In the last year, Gulfstream has expanded the Savannah and Appleton facilities, and built new ones in Palm Beach, Florida, and Farnborough, England. A new service center in Fort Worth, Texas, is also planned. Gulfstream is planning long-term workforce expansions for Savannah, Appleton, and Van Nuys. It’s also offering employees at the Long Beach facility the opportunity to apply for positions within the company, including at the Van Nuys, Savannah, and Appleton facilities.
Gulfstream President Mark Burns says Gulfstream’s investments will modernize and strategically expand its manufacturing and service networks. “By leveraging these newer, more modern locations and synergies across the network, we can further enhance the overall experience for our customers, whether they’re taking delivery of a new aircraft or scheduling service,” he says. The 66,000-square-foot (6,132-square-meter) Van Nuys facility features roughly 43,000 square feet (3,995 square meters) of hangar space—enough to simultaneously service four Gulfstream G650ER or G650 aircraft.
