Renault is a multinational company with more than one century of history and operations in 128 countries across five continents, with over 122 thousand employees worldwide. Its current product range includes small and midsize cars, vans, buses and trucks.

In Brazil, Renault has currently 7,300 direct employees and generates approximately 25 thousand indirect jobs. The brand’s local dealer network comprises more than 300 sales outlets. In 2016, it sold in excess of 150 thousand vehicles in the domestic market, for 7.5% of market share. Since 2010, the company’s share in the local automotive market is growing steadily and sustainably.

Renault’s industrial unit is located in São José dos Pinhais, State of Paraná. The Ayrton Senna Complex comprises three plants – the passenger car plant (that produces the Kwid, Sandero, Logan, Duster, Duster pickup truck and Captur SUV), the light commercial vehicles plant (where the Master is made, in addition to Nissan models through the Renault-Nissan Alliance) and the powertrain plant. Made in Argentina, Fluence and Kangoo are also sold in Brazil.

The Ayrton Senna Complex stretches over 2.5 million m², from which 60% cover a protected area inhabited by more than 110 species of birds and 28 species of mammals. The three plants are ISO 14001 certified for their commitment to environmental management. Since 2016, all factories also comply with ISO 26000 standards for socially responsible behavior and actions. Renault Brazil has a zero-landfill commitment, which means that it recycles or repurposes 100% of the waste generated by its manufacturing processes.

The Ayrton Senna Complex in Brazil is also home to the Renault Technology Americas (RTA), which houses approximately 700 engineers. Established in 2007, the center is channeled into the development of products geared towards the needs and specificities of Latin American consumers.

The Renault Design Latin America (RDAL), located in São Paulo, is the brand’s first design studio in the Americas, which placed Brazil in the select group of countries chosen by Renault to house one of its automotive styling studios
