Rolls-Royce has officially opened its latest customer support facility in Savannah, Georgia, USA. The new 62,000 ft² (5,800 m²) Savannah Customer Service Center is adjacent to the new Gulfstream Service Center East and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of this year. It will house an on-site customer support office, an on-wing services repair facility, a powerplant completion center, and a warehouse, all under one roof.
The investment will create additional highly skilled jobs over the next few years, increasing the total number of the company’s employees supporting Gulfstream and its customers.
The new service center was named the Rolls-Royce Raines Building, in honor of local aviation pioneer Hazel Jane Raines. Raines was Georgia’s First Lady of Aviation, a strong advocate for women’s rights and an inspiring trailblazer for women in aviation.
