Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has announced it plans to open a new service center at Palm Beach International Airport to increase services to customers and add to the employees at its West Palm Beach, Florida, the company said.
The company will build a nearly 115,000-square-foot/10,684-square-meter maintenance, repair and overhaul facility on the west side of the airport. The new facility, which includes offices, back shops and an approximately 75,000-sq-ft/6,968-sq-m hangar, will replace the smaller one Gulfstream now operates on the south side of the airport.
