Amazon opening fulfillment centre in Salt Lake City

Jul '17
Amazon.com has announced that it will create 1,500 full-time hourly associate roles at its first Utah fulfillment centre in Salt Lake City. Amazon employees at the 855,000-plus square-foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys. The facility will enable Amazon to better serve customers.

“We are excited to continue growing our team with the first fulfillment center in Utah,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American operations.

“In Utah, there are already more than 30,000 authors, sellers, and developers growing their businesses and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services. This new facility will enable us to better serve customers and improve Prime membership benefits,” Chauhan said.

“We applaud Amazon’s decision to invest in Utah. The state of Utah’s talented workforce and business-friendly environment allows innovative companies like Amazon to thrive. Their investment in Salt Lake City’s Northwest Quadrant will be a significant economic driver to attract new high-paying jobs and diversify our economy,” said Governor Gary R Herbert.

“We extend a warm welcome to Amazon and its new fulfillment centre. We consider this a perfect pairing, as Amazon and Salt Lake City are both known for our customer service and ease of doing business. We are very excited for the 1,500 new full-time jobs Amazon will create in our community, and look forward to a long future of working together,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski. (SV)
