Amazon.com plans to open its first Missouri fulfillment centre in St Peters, creating over 1,500 jobs with opportunities to engage with Amazon Robotics in a highly technological workplace. Amazon currently operates a sortation centre in Hazelwood, which employs hundreds of associates. Employees at the fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship small items.

“We’re excited to continue growing our team with our first, state-of-the-art fulfillment centre in Missouri,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “Our ability to expand in Missouri is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce. Amazon is committed to providing great opportunities for employment and creating a positive economic impact for the region.”

Amazon employees at the more than 800,000 square foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and toys. The facility will feature innovative technology such as Amazon Robotics that will assist employees in fulfilling customer orders.

“Amazon’s choice to locate in Missouri speaks to our strength as North America’s logistics centre,” Rob Dixon, director of Missouri’s Department of Economic Development said. “Our central location, international airports and extensive highway, rail and river networks position Missouri as an ideal location for this new facility.”

“We are excited to congratulate Amazon for yet another investment in Missouri,” said Steve Johnson, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “Amazon is a great partner to Missouri and it was an honour to be a part of the Missouri team. We are thrilled they will be creating jobs and investing to improve the lives of Missouri citizens.” (SV)
