Gulfstream Aerospace will expand its operations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area with the construction of a service center at Fort Worth Alliance Airport. The facility, which will complement Gulfstream’s presence at Dallas Love Field, is expected to open by the fall of 2021 and will create approximately 50 new jobs.
To help meet the needs of its growing customer fleet, Gulfstream will invest more than US$35 million to build a nearly 160,000-ft² / 14,864-m² maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Alliance. The building will include hangar space, back shops and employee and customer offices. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
Approximately 150 to 200 of Gulfstream’s 230 Customer Support employees at Love Field are expected to relocate to Alliance, about 35 miles away, while about 30 to 80 employees will remain at Love Field to continue to provide on-site and transient operators with maintenance and service. Gulfstream’s mid-cabin aircraft completions business in Dallas, which includes about 350 employees and five hangars, will remain at Love Field.
