APPLETON – Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently opened its new paint hangar in Appleton, which is also home to a Gulfstream Service Center and a large-cabin completions facility. 

The expansion is part of a multi-year plan announced in 2021. 

Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream, said this strategic growth has significantly increased operations and created more than 200 jobs in the region. 

“This latest expansion in Appleton is another example of our continued investment in people and facilities as we expand to meet the demands of the growing Gulfstream fleet,” he said.  “The opening of this new paint hangar means we can provide even more convenience and options to Gulfstream customers.”

The custom-designed, 73,000-square-foot facility has the capacity to complete the exterior paint process for up to 48 aircraft per year and represents an investment of more than $55 million. Burns said the hangar uses a proprietary paint booth design developed by Gulfstream in conjunction with Wisconsin-based paint booth manufacturer Global Finishing Solutions.
