Amazon.com is opening its first fulfillment centre in Fresno - Amazon’s fifth such centre in California’s Central Valley, with three operating fulfillment centres in Tracy and Patterson, and a fourth facility under construction in Sacramento. The centre will specialise in handling smaller-sized items such as books, electronic devices and children’s toys.

Other Amazon California customer fulfillment facilities are located in San Bernardino, Redlands, Moreno Valley, Rialto, Eastvale and Newark. Additionally, there are more than 460,000 authors, sellers, and developers in California growing their businesses and reaching new customers via Amazon products and services.

“We are very excited to expand our network into Fresno and throughout the San Joaquin Valley as a region. There are several factors we consider when deciding on where to place a new fulfillment centre. Most importantly, we look to see where we can improve prime benefits with faster shipping speeds for customers and where there is a dedicated workforce that can raise the bar of our operational excellence. We know we’ll find talent in abundance in Fresno to join the Amazon team,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American Operations.

Mayor Lee Brand of Fresno said, “We look forward to their fulfillment team joining our rapidly growing business community and building on the positive momentum that is energising our economy. Amazon will not only provide quality jobs, they’ll also bring a tradition of volunteering and partnering with local small businesses that are vital to our overall success. We are thankful for the job opportunities Amazon will offer to our residents and we will embrace Amazon and make them part of the fabric of our great city.”

“In just five years, Amazon has become one of the fastest-growing and largest employers in the Central Valley, providing thousands of Californians with good-paying jobs,” said Panorea Avdis, director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz). (SV)
