Gulfstream Aerospace has opened a showroom in Midtown Manhattan, bringing its design experts and sales specialists closer to customers in one of the world’s busiest business-aviation regions, the company announced this week. The nearly 8,500-sq-ft sales and design center is equipped with digital tools and thousands of materials samples to enable Gulfstream specialists to help customers customize their aircraft.
Fitted with a nearly 20-foot “power wall,” the center provides digital design and cabin layout selection capabilities. Customers will be able view seat configurations, as well as have access to a physical seating display to see and feel the architecture and comfort of the options. In addition, the center enables viewing of external paint configurations, wireless streaming of Gulfstream-developed mobile applications, and videoconferencing technology.
The center joins a growing number of showrooms and sales offices that Gulfstream is adding to provide customers with more centralized access to “white glove” sales and design service, Gulfstream said. Other facilities are located in London, Savannah, Dallas, and Long Beach, California.
“We continuously strive to elevate the customer experience,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “Establishing a customer-focused space in New York City, an international business hub, complements our significant worldwide footprint and better positions us to support our customers in Manhattan, whether they are based in the region or visiting from around the world.”
