Revived Demand Allows Embraer To Maintain E-Jet Production Rates
A surge in orders for commercial “E-Jets” is fueling a rebound in Embraer’s backlog after a painful downturn, but the top executive at the Brazilian aircraft builder says there are no plans to raise production levels anytime soon.
President and CEO Frederico Curado says the company expects to deliver 90-95 E-Jets this year and a similar number in 2014. “It’s going to be pretty much stable for the next year,” Curado said in an interview following a Sept. 13 ceremony at the company’s headquarters to mark the delivery of the 1,000th E-Jet.
