Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer also has offices in China, France, Portugal, Singapore and the U.S. Founded in 1969, the company designs, develops, manufactures and sells aircraft and systems for the commercial aviation, executive aviation and defense and security segments, as well as provides after-sales support and services to customers worldwide.

Thirty-five years ago, the company opened its U.S. Headquarters in Fort Lauderdale.

Embraer's number one value is "Our people are what make us fly," and its people are the reason the company has made Florida Trend's Best Companies To Work For In Florida list four years in a row.
