Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has moved its European Customer Support Parts Distribution Center from the London area to near Amsterdam. The new center adjacent to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol houses high-usage items and provides timely support to company-authorized maintenance facilities in the European Union (EU).
“We made this move to ensure the continued speedy delivery of parts and materials to customers in the EU,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support.
“In preparation for Brexit, we began moving parts from our London Heathrow-area distribution center into Amsterdam several months ago. The Amsterdam location is fully operational, and we have already transitioned more than $20 million in inventory. All stock in Amsterdam is customscleared into the EU, allowing for faster access to parts.”
“Our customers traveling through or based in the United Kingdom will continue to receive support from our company-owned London-Luton Airport service center, which has a parts inventory of more than $45 million. Parts supply and availability in the UK remain a high priority for our organization as the larger European market evolves.“
