Amazon is opening a new fulfillment centre in Beaumont, continuing innovation in the Inland Empire. This will create more than 1,000 jobs. The facility will join Amazon’s other Inland Empire fulfillment facilities in Eastvale, Moreno Valley, Redlands, Rialto, Riverside and San Bernardino, where it launched its first California fulfillment centre in 2012.

“The Inland Empire has been a great place to do business: serve customers, create jobs, and raise the bar on innovative technologies,” said Mark Stewart, vice president of Amazon’s North America Operations. “Since we started fulfilling customer orders six years ago in San Bernardino, we’ve been able to build up an amazing team of dedicated associates who now earn at least $15 an hour and receive industry-leading benefits on their first day of employment. We’re excited to now be part of the Beaumont community and grow our team there.”

Amazon has created more than 39,000 jobs in California and since 2011, invested over $19 billion in the state, including infrastructure and compensation to its employees. The company estimates that its direct investments in California contributed an additional $15 billion to the state’s economy from 2011-2017 and generated an additional 50,000 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires. There are also more than 175,000 small and medium-sized businesses in California selling on Amazon.

“Amazon is the largest employer in the Inland Empire. I am pleased to announce that Amazon has chosen Beaumont and will be opening a four-story, 640,000-square-foot fulfillment centre in the Beaumont industrial business park at the merge of Interstate 10 and State Route 60 freeways,” said Beaumont mayor Nancy Carroll. “Each Amazon facility opens opportunities for jobs, many involving cutting-edge technology. This facility will provide direct employment opportunities in the San Gorgonio Pass region and additional indirect jobs and commerce for local small businesses servicing the needs of the new workforce and the facility.”

Employees at the centre will pick, pack and ship items to customers such as books, small electronics, school supplies and home goods. (SV)
