Amazon setting up second facility in Stockton
Amazon is setting up its second facility in Stockton. The new fulfillment centre will create more than 1,000 jobs. Other Amazon fulfillment facilities in Central and Northern California are located in Fresno, Newark, Patterson, Sacramento, Tracy and Vacaville. Amazon has created more than 39,000 jobs in California and since 2011 invested over $19 billion.

“Since we first began operating in California six years ago, we have found a network of support from community leaders, a dedicated workforce and fantastic customers,” said Mark Stewart, vice president of Amazon’s North America Operations. “We’re excited to expand in Stockton and develop our employees through on-the-job skills training and through our Career Choice programme, which hundreds of our California associates have used to go back to school.”

Amazon 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, and this year California was number 2 on Amazon’s list of Top 10 Most Entrepreneurial States.

“Stockton is a city with great momentum, and we’ve made jobs and economic development top priority,” said Stockton mayor Michael Tubbs. “I am excited about connecting our local workforce with the 1,000 jobs and investment Amazon is bringing to our community with this new project.”

Employees at the one million-square-foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship items to customers such as patio furniture, bikes, outdoor equipment and rugs.

“We are thrilled that Amazon has selected Stockton for a second major location in our city,” said Micah Runner, economic development director for Stockton. “Amazon, along with many others, are finding Stockton the right place to locate their business, further evidenced by the decision to invest in our community once again.” (SV)
