Amazon.com has plans to open its second Colorado fulfillment centre in Thornton, which will be the first Amazon robotics facility in the centennial state. Amazon will create more than 1,500 new full-time associate roles at the facility. Employees at the centre will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

“We are excited to continue growing in Colorado with the new Amazon Robotics fulfillment centre in Thornton. This facility will utilise Amazon robotics, vision systems, and more than 20 years’ worth of software and mechanical innovations. We are grateful for the support we have received from state and local leaders who have helped make this project possible,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American Operations.

Amazon employees will work alongside innovative technologies at the 855,000-plus square-foot fulfillment centre picking, packing, and shipping smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

“We are pleased to continue working with Amazon as it grows and creates jobs in Colorado. Our talented workforce will have the opportunity to learn new, valuable skills with Amazon and work alongside innovative technology. We look forward to the great jobs with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits that Amazon will bring to the state,” said Governor John Hickenlooper.

“The City of Thornton is extremely excited Amazon chose to locate this state-of-the art facility in Thornton. Amazon’s commitment to the communities where their fulfillment centres are located is impressive. They will be the largest employer in Thornton and represent the cutting edge of innovation in the e-commerce market,” said Thornton Mayor Heidi Williams. (SV)
