Embraer Executive Jets has opened a new interior shop at its Sorocaba service center near São Paulo, Brazil. Located at Sorocaba Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport, the facility provides maintenance services for all of the Embraer business jets, from the Phenom 100EV to the Lineage 1000.
The interior shop provides custom interiors for new jets, as well as refurbishment of older interiors. Products available include carpets; headliners; leather; new veneer and wood varnishing; and flooring products such as stone, wood, vinyl, or leather. Customers can decide on interior materials by reviewing samples at the Sorocaba interior shop and also evaluate various paint schemes.
With Embraer maintenance and interior services both available at the Sorocaba shop, customers can have everything done during one trip, according to Everton Vicente de Lima, general manager of Embraer’s Brazil service center. This includes line maintenance, inspections, and custom interior refurbishment.
The Sorocaba service center is certified to work on aircraft from Brazil, the U.S., Europe, Chile, and Argentina. Embraer has invested about $25 million at Sorocaba, which includes $5 million for equipment and tools.
