Gulfstream Expands Appleton Facility

Gulfstream is expanding its presence in Appleton, Wisconsin, by adding a paint hangar and creating an additional 200 jobs.

The company says that overall, it is investing more than US$55 million in the facility, which falls in line with recent expansions at other Gulfstream facilities around the world.

“Gulfstream continues to make significant investments across the company to address both current demand and future growth in our completions and Customer Support operations,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream. “The investment in our Appleton facility is a key part of our overall strategy to provide our customers with industry leading completions and support worldwide.” 

Gulfstream has been slowly adding to Appleton’s capabilities since the facility was first opened. The new paint hangar, which is currently scheduled to begin operations in the third quarter of 2023, will have enough capacity to paint 48 aircraft per year.

“We are in a period of rapid growth and are currently hiring for a wide range of positions. We have openings for engineers, mechanics, avionics technicians and highly skilled trade and craftspeople. Gulfstream offers excellent training to assist in starting a new career in aviation,” said L.D. Buerger, vice president of completions at Gulfstream. “Gulfstream creates the world’s finest business aircraft, designed and outfitted with beautiful interiors. We are excited about this expansion and the opportunity to recruit and hire new talent to join the Gulfstream team at our Appleton facility.”
