Gulfstream Supplier Portal
The Gulfstream Supply Chain Management System is committed to creating a customer-focused, world-class environment that provides expertise in the areas of strategic sourcing, materials management and supplier relationships.
This site is your portal to the Gulfstream supplier process. The guidelines and detailed information you will need to work with the company are contained here. There are links to frequently used forms, sites with additional information and helpful Gulfstream contacts.
Each Gulfstream procurement group looks forward to developing a positive business relationship with its suppliers so that the best possible materials, parts and services are provided for Gulfstream aircraft.
- Supplier Relationships - Gulfstream strives to produce and maintain professional, long-term relationships with suppliers, which creates healthy strategic growth for both parties.
- Strategic Sourcing - Gulfstream continually uses commodity management to obtain the optimal supply base for competitiveness and reliability.
- Materials Management - Gulfstream partners with the supply base to collectively plan and control the flow of material throughout the Gulfstream supply chain.
Supply chain management is led by the vice president of Materials, who is based in Savannah, Georgia. Primary responsibility is production aircraft procurement for Production (basic aircraft) and Completions (aircraft outfitting) at six production facilities. Supply chain management is also closely linked with the procurement operations that support Gulfstream aircraft manufacturing at IAI in Tel Aviv, Israel. Though sites have responsibility for procurement of minor services and materials in support of their location, most major services and indirect materials are procured by Savannah via corporate contracts.
Spares purchasing is performed within the Product Support organization, also headquartered in Savannah. The vice president of Materials also sets and enforces all materials policies and procedures for the company.
The Gulfstream name and the value of the products it stands for depend directly upon the high caliber of the materials, parts and services provided by suppliers.
Gulfstream seeks to develop and sustain long-term relationships with suppliers that consistently maintain high standards for delivery, quality, reliability and value.
A supplier’s reputation for integrity, customer service, quality and compliance depends upon how closely the supplier adheres to the guidelines contained on this page.
