Amazon opening new fulfillment centre in Ohio

Amazon is opening a new fulfillment center in North Randall, Ohio, which will create over 2,000 full-time associate roles with opportunities to engage with Amazon Robotics in a highly technological workplace. Employees at the more than 855,000-square-foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items such as electronics, toys and books.

“Our ability to expand in Ohio is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce in the state,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North American Customer Fulfillment. “We very much appreciate the state and local elected leaders who have supported Amazon’s arrival in North Randall and look forward to bringing more jobs and investment in the coming months.”

Amazon currently employs more than 4,500 full-time hourly associates at its two existing Ohio fulfillment centres in Etna and Obetz.

“Along with Team NEO and the Village of North Randall, the Cleveland Port Authority, and the Greater Cleveland Partnership, we are pleased to partner with Amazon to revitalise and bring jobs back to a property that has stood vacant for too long,” said JobsOhio president and chief investment officer John Minor. “Amazon’s investment at a site where the nation’s largest shopping mall once stood will now support digital retail jobs.”

“Words cannot begin to express what Amazon’s commitment to the development of its fulfillment centre means for the Village of North Randall,” said Mayor David Smith. “This is a generational project that not only redefines the future of our community but the future of more than 2,000 Cuyahoga County residents who will be employed at the facility.”

The project is being developed in partnership with Seefried Industrial Properties. (SV)
