Amazon is building a new fulfilment centre in Daventry, Northamptonshire, UK, which is scheduled to open in 2017, which will be creating more than 300 permanent jobs. The new centre will be the third Amazon Fulfilment Centre in the Midlands area joining the existing site in Rugeley in Staffordshire and Coalville fulfilment centre in Leicestershire.

The world's biggest online retailer is increasing the UK network of fulfilment centres to meet increasing customer demand, while expanding product selection of more than 150 million items.

"The new site in Daventry will enable us to continue to expand our product selection, support more third party sellers including small businesses with our fulfilment expertise and meet growing customer demand in the UK," John Tagawa, Amazon's vice president of UK operations said.

Amazon has invested more than £4.6 billion in UK to build and run its UK business since 2010. It plans to have more than 15,500 permanent employees at its UK head office in London, by the end of this year and currently operates twelve fulfilment centres in the country. (AR)
