Large-Cabin Interior Outfitting Capabilities Added to Gulfstream Dallas Facility
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced it is expanding Gulfstream G600™ completions operations to the Gulfstream Dallas facility, further increasing growth and large-cabin capacity for customers. As part of this expansion, Gulfstream’s director of Savannah completions, Melissa Grant, has been named vice president and general manager of the Dallas facility and will be relocating to facilitate the seamless transition of expertise and experience.
“We are seeing great demand for our next-generation aircraft, including the G600,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Thanks to our long-term strategic planning, the growth of Gulfstream Customer Support at Fort Worth Alliance Airport is allowing us to optimize completions at our Dallas Love Field facility and add the G600 to operations there. Our worldclass interior outfitters and artisans in Dallas will deliver the Gulfstream quality and excellence that has made our award-winning interiors the best in the business.” In addition to the Dallas expansion, Gulfstream large-cabin completions are conducted in Savannah and Appleton, Wisconsin. In February, Gulfstream announced the expansion and renovation of the Appleton facility’s completions operations.
Completions for the super-midsize Gulfstream G280™ are also performed at the Gulfstream Dallas facility. In February 2020, Gulfstream Customer Support announced the expansion of its Dallas-based service center to Fort Worth Alliance Airport to help meet the needs of its growing customer fleet. The new, nearly 160,000-square-foot/14,864-square-meter maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Fort Worth will include hangar space, back shops and employee and customer offices.
