Gulfstream Aerospace boosts its Luton presence
US aircraft manufacturer, Gulfstream Aerospace, is to add £2.4m in spare parts inventory to its Luton Service Centre to support the growing fleet of Gulfstream business jets operating in Europe and the Middle East.
Larry Flynn, president, Product Support, Gulfstream, said: “By increasing the number of spare parts in Luton, we are ensuring that both existing and future Gulf-stream aircraft operators in this region receive the parts they need as fast as possible.
“From Luton, we’ll be able to ship parts overnight to locations throughout Europe and the Middle East.”
Gulfstream will be overseeing the spare-parts distribution process, which is scheduled to begin June 1. Gulfstream’s Luton Service Centre currently manages a limited onsite spare parts inventory used by service technicians while performing maintenance at the facility.
Gulfstream Aerospace is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics – employer of 72,200 people worldwide and with 2005 total revenues of $21.2 billion (£11.5bn).
