“AkzoNobel is not only supplying products to Embraer, but also supplying solutions. In 2015, AkzoNobel and Embraer executed a project together where AkzoNobel installed a paint mixing system inside Embraer production unit. This project was the project winner of the year at Embraer, resulting in lead-time reduction from 60 to 5 days. This flexibility has provided to be huge importance to our Sales Team and to our customer. We at Embraer like to thank AkzoNobel for their commitment and partnership over the years.”
