Facility Supports Continued Company Growth With Quicker Delivery Of Parts, Materials

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently announced it has expanded its worldwide service and support network by opening a parts and materials distribution center near Los Angeles. The 5,000-square-foot/464.5-square-meter facility at Van Nuys Airport primarily serves Gulfstream customers in the western U.S. and Canada, shortening delivery times and minimizing shipping costs.

The Van Nuys facility is expected to have approximately $15 million in parts and materials by the end of 2014. Gulfstream maintains a worldwide spares inventory of more than $1.4 billion. An on-site sales representative is available to arrange for local pickup and delivery of parts.

“This is another milestone in our growth,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “As we expand, we need to continue to provide our customers with the parts they need as quickly as possible. We chose Van Nuys because of its proximity to one of the largest bases of Gulfstream operators in the world. In the Los Angeles area alone, we have more than 100 operators; in California, we have more than 200. Over the next three years or so, we’ll increase our inventory and support in Van Nuys.”

Gulfstream also has parts and materials at its nearby aircraft service centers in Long Beach, California, and Las Vegas, and at its component service center in Lincoln, California.
