Gulfstream Opens Paint Facility In Savannah For In-Service Aircraft

September 2, 2015 – Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has opened a paint facility in Savannah specifically for in-service aircraft.

The state-of-the art building is expected to create 100 new jobs; approximately 80 of which have already been filled. Paint technicians will induct the facility’s first customer aircraft next week.

“Demand for new Gulfstream aircraft is strong and so is the demand for enhancing aircraft already in service,” said Joe Rivera, vice president and general manager, Gulfstream Savannah Service Center.

“This facility gives customers a dedicated space for our Product Support organization to tackle their paint requests from full strip-and-paint jobs to custom livery and logo applications. Its close proximity to the Savannah Service Center makes it an ideal location for customers who need maintenance and/or refurbishment work to go along with painting an individual part, multiple parts or an entire aircraft. The end result will be reduced downtimes.”

The new building comprises approximately 88,000 square feet including more than 72,000 sf of hangar space, offices, back shops and storage areas. The air-conditioned and heated hangar space is divided into a crossdraft bay for stripping, sanding and priming and a downdraft bay for painting. All Gulfstream aircraft models can be accommodated. The new paint facility is equipped with environmental controls and the latest fire suppression systems.
