Amazon completes ten years of fulfilling customer orders from the Phoenix-area this fall by opening a new fulfillment centre and unveiling an overhaul of its original Valley facility. Together, the two facilities will create more than 1,000 full-time jobs. These new jobs are on top of the 6,000 full-time workers Amazon employs throughout the Copper State.

“Arizona has played an important role in Amazon’s history,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “Our team in Arizona has been instrumental in providing outstanding customer experiences, raising the bar on our operational excellence, and continuing to innovate on behalf of the customer. Since our first day at the Buckeye Road facility, we’ve received amazing support from the community and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of the Arizona family.”

Amazon’s first fulfillment centre in the Valley opened in the fall of 2007 with a team of 300 full-time employees. Since that building’s launch a decade ago, Amazon has opened three other fulfillment centres, a Prime Now hub, a sortation centre, a customer/seller support centre, and corporate offices in the Copper State. This fall, renovations were completed at the Buckeye Road facility and the building is now dedicated solely to handling apparel and shoes.

Over the past decade, Amazon has invested billions of dollars into its local fulfillment center infrastructure and through compensation to thousands of employees in the Copper State. Between 2011 and 2016, Amazon’s investments in the state contributed an additional $900 million into Arizona’s economy and using methodology developed by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 18,000 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires.
