Embraer Services & Support has showcased its TechCare Space at the 2019 edition of LABACE–Latin America’s largest business airshow. This space includes a broad portfolio of interior design elements from the best manufacturers in the aircraft customization market. This collection represents the new Interior Workshop showroom at Sorocaba Service Center, Brazil.
Embraer’s Interior Workshop has two strategic partners in Latin America: Embraer Design Operations (EDO) and F/LIST Brasil which have a great expertise in high-end cabin interior services, from on-site repairs and upholstery services to cabin interior upgrades and complete retrofits. Both partners offer customization and redesign services, which involve replacing carpets, fabrics and leather, among other processes, in addition to varnish and veneer work as well as flooring installation, in stone, wood, vinyl and leather.
Among the outstanding projects already developed by the Interior Workshop is the complete revitalization of a 10-year-old Legacy 600, with the replacement of leather armchairs, removal and application of varnish on wood surfaces, replacement of carpet and vinyl flooring installation in the galley. The business model of the Sorocaba Service Center, which just completed five years of operation, is based on the One-Stop-Shop concept. With one stop, Embraer customers have access to an integrated portfolio of solutions ranging from scheduled maintenance to various types of services on their aircraft, such as minor repairs or complete tailor-made interior and exterior renovations, enhancing their ownership experience.
“We are working to consolidate the One-Stop-Shop concept to become one of the most complete service centers in the region. Through a brand-agnostic growth strategy we are developing new markets to offer our services to more aviation customers,” says Everton Vicente de Lima, General Manager of the Service Center.
To streamline the aircraft customization process, Embraer has launched an iPad app for customers to evaluate and validate various aircraft configurations with immediate visualization of selected interior and exterior design options. The application shows the materials and colors available, allowing the customer to select every detail, simulate from multiple paint schemes, choosing color and pattern composition, saving options for later comparison and refinement of final selection.
