Carolyn Smith, Realtor – New Engineering Center and More Jobs Coming to Brevard County, Florida!

Brevard County employment new jobs

Great news for Brevard County… more jobs coming to the Space Coast! Embraer, one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, has just announced plans to build a $24 million engineering center at Melbourne International Airport. The 67,000 square foot Embraer Engineering and Technology Center will be built on a 13.2 acre site adjacent to Embraer’s existing facility at Melbourne International Airport. Once Embraer’s new facility is fully constructed and operational, it is expected to employ a total of 200 workers, including aerospace engineers, with an average annual salary of $70,000. Embraer expects to hire the majority of its new workers from Brevard County, as many of the county’s former space workers will fit the new roles Embraer needs to fill.

Currently, Embraer’s only North American aircraft assembly facility and global customer center is located in Melbourne, FL, at our airport. Embraer’s new engineering facility will house a laboratory for development and testing of new materials and interior items, and they will conduct research and development for products and technologies across the company’s business lines.

Initially, new Embraer workers will be using a 25,000 square foot building that currently sits at the airport and was formally used by Northrop Grumman. This will help Embraer speed up its plans for hiring new employees and begin work even as their new engineering facility is being constructed.

Again, great news for Brevard County and our economy! Embraer’s expansion at Melbourne International Airport and the anticipation of 200 new jobs is wonderful news for the Space Coast!
