Workers at the 150,000-ft2 facility will be capable of producing eight executive jets per month when full-rate production is reached. The Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 will be built at the plant, which also will house a customer center for configuration of those aircraft, as well as the Legacy and Lineage lines. Customers will have access to 3-D visualization technology to design their plane's interior. Embraer, founded in 1969, is based in São José dos Campos.
