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 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 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 honour 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.
