Embraer Begins Construction On Aero Seating Technologies Facility In Titusville, Florida
“The new Embraer Aero Seating Technologies facility in Titusville will enable us to offer our customers the most advanced seating products and is further testament to the success of our partnership with the great state of Florida,” said Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer President/CEO.
“We are honored with the support of Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Brevard County, the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast and the North Brevard Economic Development Zone, and we are proud to continue to build upon this foundation of vision and trust.”
This marks the start of the fourth Brevard County-based facility for the international jet manufacturer and it’s first within the city of Titusville. It is also the first major expansion project to take place within the aerospace focused Spaceport Commerce Park in northern Brevard County.
“The entire community is proud to welcome Embraer to Titusville, and most importantly, we know we have a plan that works,” said George Mikitarian, President of the North Brevard Economic Development Zone.
“The mission of the NBEDZ has always been to attract companies to North Brevard that want to take advantage of a highly trained, available workforce and infrastructure that supports high-tech pursuits. While we won’t stop here, today, we’re proud to say mission accomplished,” he added.
“Embraer’s new facility and their creation of 150 new jobs in Titusville is great news for Florida families,” said Governor Rick Scott. “It is exciting that this is their fourth project in Brevard County and it’s clear that Embraer continues to choose Florida because of our low-tax, business-friendly environment. We must continue to fund Enterprise Florida so we can attract companies like Embraer, compete with other states, and create more jobs for Florida families.”
