Embraer has announced that Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS) in Macon, Georgia, has signed two heavy maintenance services agreements worth $72 million.
The agreements with air carriers Envoy Air Inc. and JSX will provide each company with airframe maintenance and repair services at the Georgia facility.
Envoy has been an EAMS customer since 2002 and has outsourced maintenance lines to EAMS periodically since 2011, though the new contract provides one nose-to-tail heavy maintenance line. With JSX, Embraer has signed a long-term agreement for two nose-to-tail heavy maintenance lines.
“We welcome Envoy back to EAMS as a recurring customer of heavy maintenance and look forward to the start of new partnerships with JSX for our support,” said Frank Stevens, Vice President, Global MRO Centers, Embraer Services & Support. “Macon continues to expand, and these new lines will promote growth within the area and open job positions for qualified talent. Overall, these contracts are mutually beneficial for our partners as we can provide exceptional service while expanding our operations.”
