APPLETON – Governor Scott Walker joined officials from Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation today as the company announced plans to create approximately 200 new manufacturing and support jobs and invest $40 million in its Appleton facility. Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation designs, manufactures, and services business jet aircraft.

“We’re here to celebrate Gulfstream’s creation of approximately 200 new jobs and $40 million capital investment in Appleton, and we thank Gulfstream for its continued commitment to Wisconsin,” said Governor Walker. “The company’s decision to expand right here in the Fox Valley is yet another sign that our state’s economy is strong and we have the best workers in the country. With the lowest unemployment rate since 1999, it’s clear Wisconsin is open for business.”

In addition to the approximately 200 jobs being created by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, 13 other northeastern Wisconsin companies announced plans in 2017 to create nearly 1,500 jobs in the region.

More information from Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation:

“The Appleton, Wisconsin, Service Center meets operators’ most advanced maintenance needs. The 315,587-square-feet/29,319-square-meter facility doubles as a completion center for large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft, resulting in a broad range of expertise.”

    Great announcements today as the state’s economy continues to grow and thrive under Governor Scott Walker! Congratulations to Gulfstream Aviation and Appleton… A healthy biz jet sector really bodes well for corporations’ confidence in the American economy.

    WI is under performing compared to the nation & the midwest.

    It’s like bragging about your kid getting a $15 an hour job, right out of college. Well good for them but many are doing better.
