As part of the effort, the company will close its Long Beach location, moving the service work to Gulfstream Van Nuys and the completions work to Savannah and Appleton. Long-term workforce expansions are planned for all three locations.
“We have made significant investments to modernize and strategically expand our operational capabilities in both our manufacturing and service networks,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “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.”
Long Beach will experience a phased closure over the next six months as work shifts to the other locations. To maintain continuity of service and retain the extensive technical talent of its Long Beach workforce, Gulfstream is offering those employees the opportunity to apply for positions elsewhere in the company with a focus on Van Nuys, Savannah and Appleton.
