Embraer has unveiled plans to invest US$ 30 million in the
expansion of its Eugênio de Melo unit, in São José dos Campos (São Paulo, Brazil).
Through the construction of new
facilities, the site will have capacity for over 4,000 employees.
The site currently has 1,500 employees working in manufacturing,
development, engineering, structural and system testing, and
training, among other administrative and research activities.
“The future of the Brazilian aviation industry
will be the result of what we dream and build together. We believe
this is the best tribute we can pay on Embraer's 50th
anniversary,” said Francisco Gomes Neto, President and CEO of
Embraer. “By announcing the expansion of the Eugênio de Melo unit,
in São José dos Campos, we reinforce our commitment to our people
and the local community, which are both part of our strategic
vision of continuous and sustainable growth.”
At least 600 temporary job opportunities were
created for the construction of four new buildings. The buildings
will be dedicated to the company's global engineering and
technology center, to customer service and training, housing flight
simulators and other technologies to provide technical instruction
to the company's aircraft operators, to administrative areas and
to the company’s historical center dedicated to Embraer's 50-year
history and the advancements the company has created for the
national aviation industry.
Embraer is also making improvements, as well as
expanding the current facilities, such as the restaurant,
concierge, bus platforms and parking. The improvements are
expected to be completed in the last quarter of this year and will
increase the facility from 754,000 square feet (70,000 square
meters) to 1.2 million square feet (110,000 square meters). The
unit is located on a 121 acre (530,000 square meter) site and
began operations in 2001.
