Amazon.com plans to open its first Oregon fulfillment centre in Troutdale which will create more than 1,500 full-time positions. The company currently operates a sortation centre in Hillsboro and Prime Now hub in Portland. There are more than 40,000 authors, sellers, and developers in Oregon reaching new customers via Amazon products and services.

“We are excited to bring our first fulfillment centre to the state of Oregon, creating 1,500 full-time jobs in Troutdale. Governor Brown, the city of Troutdale, and many others have been instrumental in our decision to locate the new fulfillment centre in the area, and we appreciate the support we’ve received to bring new jobs and investment to Oregon,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North America Operations.

Amazon employees at the 855,000-square-foot Troutdale fulfillment centre will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

“Amazon’s expansion in Oregon brings us great jobs with competitive wages and bright futures for its employees and communities. I’m committed to building a talented workforce that can take advantage of opportunities to work alongside innovative technology and have access to continuing education programming,” said Governor Kate Brown.

“We’re proud that Amazon chose Troutdale for its first Oregon fulfillment centre. Troutdale has an excellent workforce, is strategically located to support Amazon’s growing customer fulfillment operations and we are thrilled to be long-term partners with this innovative company,” said Troutdale Mayor Casey Ryan.
