Gulfstream closes service center in Brazil
A service center in Sorocaba (Brazil) served as a Gulfstream maintenance hub in Latin America.
The decision to close the service center was made after "significant research and evaluation."
The complex included a newly opened hangar with an area of 34,768 square ft / 3230 sq. m, capable of accommodating up to eight aircraft. Gulfstream Brazil also has an office and spare parts warehouse. The stock of the service center in Sorocaba kept spare parts worth $ 8 million. Thanks to these resources, Gulfstream aircraft returned to the air in the shortest possible time. Nine technicians and senior technicians worked in the center, and was located on the territory of the Bertram Luiz Leupolz Sorocaba Airport (SDCO).
The company remains committed to its customers in Latin America (which accounts for about 200 Jet Gulfstream business) and promises to provide full support in the future.
Further, the company is expanding its West Palm Beach, Florida service center, which “has been the center of choice for most customers in Latin America,” it noted. When completed early next year, the 115,000-sq-ft West Palm facility “nearly triples the size of the Sorocaba facility and offers an enhanced service experience,” - Gulfstream.
“As our customers’ needs and our fleet evolve, so too must our approach to service,” - said Gulfstream - “This new, multi-faceted approach will help us be more agile and responsive to our customers’ needs in the [Latin American] region.”
