Based in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, Embraer was founded in 1969 as a government initiative and then privatized on December 7, 1994.

Embraer has become one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world by focusing on specific market segments with high growth potential in commercial, defense, and executive aviation. They develop and adapt successful aircraft platforms and judiciously introduce new technology whenever it creates value by lowering acquisition price, reducing direct operating costs, or delivering higher reliability, comfort, and safety.

As a result, their aircraft provide excellent performance with day-in and day-out reliability, while being economical to acquire and cost-effective to operate and maintain. Equally important, they provide a superior product package, with comprehensive aircraft and after-sales support for parts, services, and technical assistance.

Embraer was Brazil’s largest exporter from 1999 to 2001 and the second largest in 2002, 2003 and 2004. It currently employs more than 17.375* people, 87.7% based in Brazil.

Embraer is committed to generating value for its shareholders by fully attending to the needs of its clients operating in the global aeronautical market. Value generation means that Company value is maximized and the Company's perpetuity is guaranteed, while still holding on to behavioral integrity as well as to social and environmental awareness.

The Company focuses its activities on three business areas and markets:

Embraer invests directly towards the introduction and implementation of advanced engineering and manufacturing technologies, as well as into products. The assimilation of these new technologies produces benefits that clearly extend to their Brazilian suppliers, as well as academic and research institutions.

One of these fronts focuses efforts on the intensive use of Embraer's Virtual Reality Center. This has allowed improvements of methodologies for fast lay out of three-dimensional arrangements of parts and components, as well as the fast execution of drawings and definition of manufacturing and assembly dimensions. Simulation of performance under stress also benefited.

Embraer is engaged in expanding its global presence in commercial, executive, and defense aviation. For that, it has gathered the best technological and financial qualifications in addition to state-of-the art resources in terms of manufacture, sales, and services. The Company has operational units in several locations around the world.
