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

In Brazil, Renault has currently 5,100 direct employees and generates approximately 25 thousand indirect jobs. It is the world’s fifth largest car manufacturer, and its local dealer network comprises over 300 sales outlets. In 2015, it sold more than 181 thousand vehicles in the domestic market, representing 7,3% of market share. Renault is one of the country’s top growing car manufacturers in the recent years and, in 2011, Renault Brazil has become the Group’s second largest operation worldwide after France.

Renault’s industrial site is located in São José dos Pinhais, State of Paraná. The Ayrton Senna Complex includes three plants – the passenger car plant (that produces the Duster, Duster Oroch, Logan and Sandero), the light commercial vehicles plant (where the Master is produced, in addition to the Nissan Frontier by the Renault-Nissan Alliance) and the powertrain plant. The Clio, Fluence and Kangoo, made in Argentina, are also sold in Brazil.

The Ayrton Senna Complex covers 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.

Brazil is also home to a unit of Renault Technology Americas (RTA), housing 600 engineers among the 1,000 engineers based in other Latin American centers. Established in 2007, this center focuses on developing products geared towards the needs 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 as a location for one of its creation centers in the area.
