Savannah, GA -- Gulfstream Aerospace will be adding spare-parts inventory valued at $4.5 million to its Luton, England, Service Center to support the growing fleet of Gulfstream business jets operating in Europe and the Middle East. The additional spares inventory will include spare parts for Gulfstream G200, GIV, GV, G350, G450, G500 and G550 business-jet models.
"Just in the past year, we have seen a significant increase in our sales activity in Europe and the Middle East," says Larry Flynn, president, Product Support, Gulfstream. "By increasing the number of spare parts in Luton, we are ensuring that both existing and future Gulfstream 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 Center currently manages a limited onsite spare parts inventory used by service technicians while performing maintenance at the facility. "This recent agreement is part of Gulfstream's ongoing commitment of moving spare parts faster and more efficiently to our customers, regardless of where an aircraft is operated," says Flynn.
