Amazon.com is starting its first fulfillment centre in Eastern Washington, in Spokane, creating more than 1,500 jobs. Amazon currently employs more than 50,000 people across the state at its headquarters in Seattle and facilities supporting customer fulfillment in DuPont, Kent and Sumner. The company has invested more than $37 billion in Washington State.

“We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment centre in Spokane and to continue innovating in our home state,” said Mark Stewart, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “Washington is known for providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience, and we are grateful to the dedicated local and state officials and teams who came together to support Amazon in bringing a new fulfillment centre to Eastern Washington.”

Amazon employees at the more than 600,000-square-foot fulfillment centre will work alongside Amazon Robotics to pick, pack and ship items to customers such as games, housewares, school supplies and pet toys.

“More than 1,500 jobs are coming to Spokane thanks to this important project,” governor Jay Inslee said. “Congratulations to Amazon and all the local partners who have worked so hard to bring these exciting job opportunities to the region.”

"We are excited to have Amazon join our business community with a significant financial investment and new employment opportunities,” said Al French, Spokane County commissioner for West Spokane. "Amazon is another Fortune 100 company to see Spokane as a critical part of their success and want to be part of Spokane's growth."

The project is being developed by Trammell Crow Company and was made possible by Greater Spokane Incorporated, The West Plains/Airport Public Development Authority, Spokane County and Spokane International Airport. (SV)
