Amazon.com plans to open its fourth Maryland fulfillment facility in Baltimore’s Sparrows Point, which will create more than 1,500 jobs. Amazon currently employs over 5,000 associates at its sortation and fulfillment centres in Baltimore and fulfillment centre in North East, Maryland. Employees at the new facility will pick, pack and ship customer items.

“We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment centre in historic Sparrows Point and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience. Maryland has an incredible workforce, and we are happy to add to the more than 5,000 associates already serving customers in the state,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment.

Over the past two years, Amazon has invested millions of dollars into its local fulfillment centre infrastructure and through compensation to thousands of employees in the state. Amazon's investments in Maryland contributed an additional $100 million into Maryland’s economy from 2014 through 2016, and using methodology developed by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 3,000 indirect jobs on top of the company's direct hires.

“Amazon’s decision to open a fourth facility in our state is tremendous news for this local community and for Maryland as a whole,” said governor Larry Hogan. “Successfully delivering this project and these 1,500 new jobs has been a top priority of our administration and another example of how Maryland is and will continue to be open for business.”

“This is what job creation looks like: a world-class company investing in the region, bringing 1,500 new jobs to Baltimore County. We are pleased to welcome Amazon to the growing list of companies with a Tradepoint Atlantic address,” said Baltimore County executive Kevin Kamenetz.

“We are very pleased to welcome Amazon as our newest tenant,” said Eric Gilbert, chief development officer for Tradepoint Atlantic. “Amazon’s decision to locate its 855,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fulfillment centre at Tradepoint Atlantic serves as further validation of the unique logistical advantages we offer and further establishes our location as a top destination for users seeking a best-in-class multi-modal logistics platform.”

Associates at the facility will pick, pack and ship customer items such as electronics, books, housewares and toys. (SV)
