São José dos Campos, January 20, 2009 – Embraer has named India’s Indamer Company Pvt. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of European Aviation Holding Co. Pvt. Ltd. (EAHC), an authorized executive jet service center. This is the first Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) company to serve Embraer’s Phenom and Legacy 600 jet customers in India.

The fast growth of the executive jet fleet in India led Embraer to choose Indamer to provide support in the region,” said Edson Mallaco, Embraer Vice President, Customer Support and Services, Executive Jets. “The reputation of Indamer, which has been operating in India since 1947, and the quality of its services were decisive factors in Embraer’ s choice.”

Based in Mumbai, Indamer has 1,200 square meters (12,900 square feet) of space for its hangar and facilities, and can provide warranty support and heavy maintenance services for customers of the Phenom and Legacy 600 jets. The service center will handle routine checks and scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, and will offer trained rescue teams for these aircraft. Operations are scheduled to begin in the first half of 2009.

Embraer has been doing good business in India. With the authorized service center now coming on line, its customers will enjoy prompt and superior services,” said Mr. Rajeev Wadhwa, EAHC Managing Director & Chief Operations Officer. “We will handle different aircraft, right from warranty support to heavy maintenance work. The company has rich experience in MRO and the right engineering skills. We will further invest in training and infrastructure enhancements to meet the stringent quality norms laid down by Embraer.”
