Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is an American wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. Gulfstream designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and services business jet aircraft. Gulfstream has produced more than 2,000 aircraft since 1958. The company that evolved into Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. started in the late 1950s when Grumman Aircraft Engineering Co., known for military aircraft production, developed a business aircraft called Grumman Gulfstream I (G-I). Through the years, the company’s officials separated the civil and military production for better efficiency while decision for relocation of the civilian component to Georgia, where still is, was made.
Through the decades the company managed to introduce new aircraft models, expand its facilities and business, acquired various aviation companies for further development. In late 1990s General Dynamics purchased Gulfstream, which lead to further expansion and acquisition of the 1st service center outside U.S.A at Luton Airport U.K, where still is.
