Rolls-Royce opened their new customer service center in Savannah, Georgia. The brand new 62,000 square foot facility is adjacent to the new Gulfstream Service Center East.
The new site (Rolls-Royce Raines Building) is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2020. The building was named in honor of local aviation pioneer Hazel Jane Raines. Raines was Georgia’s First Lady of Aviation and a strong advocate for women’s rights.
Andy Robinson, SVP Customers & Services - Business Aviation, Rolls-Royce, said: “As the leading engine manufacturer in Business Aviation, our customers trust in us to deliver outstanding levels of in-service support. This brand-new customer support facility is a strategic investment, which takes our longstanding partnership with Gulfstream to the next level and will help us deliver market-leading services to our Business Aviation customers in North America.
“The new Rolls-Royce Savannah Customer Services Center reflects the strong partnership between our two companies and our continued mutual commitment to providing a world-class ownership experience for our operators,” said Mark Burns, President, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. “The first of its kind within the Rolls-Royce network, this facility serves as a strategic complement to our two Gulfstream Savannah Service Centers, providing extensive engine capabilities where they’ll have the greatest impact: at our company and manufacturing headquarters.”
“Global Fortune 500 companies like Rolls-Royce choosing to expand in Georgia are a testament to our strength in advanced manufacturing and logistics, particularly within our $57.5 billion aerospace sector supported by the Port of Savannah – now the top port for U.S. exports,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “I am grateful to Rolls-Royce for their continued investment in the Peach State and look forward to seeing the opportunities this expansion brings to the hardworking folks of Southeast and Coastal Georgia.”
