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.
