Amazon.com plans to open its second Oregon fulfillment centre in Salem, which will create more than 1,000 full-time jobs. The company recently announced an upcoming fulfillment centre in Troutdale and it currently operates a sortation centre in Hillsboro and Prime Now hub in Portland. The Salem project is being developed by Capstone Partners and PCCP.

There are more than 40,000 authors, sellers, and developers in Oregon growing their businesses and reaching new customers via Amazon products and services.

“We are excited to continue growing in Oregon, creating 1,000 full-time jobs in Salem,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “The support of Governor Brown, local leaders, and many others has been instrumental in our decision to locate the new fulfillment centre in the state capital, and we are grateful for the support we’ve received to bring new jobs and investment to Oregon.”

“Amazon’s continued expansion in Oregon means more jobs and bright futures for the Oregonians who work there and live in the surrounding communities,” said Governor Kate Brown. “I’m committed to making sure Oregonians can build the skills to work alongside innovative technology and continue their education at the same time.”

“We’re excited to welcome Amazon to Oregon’s capital,” said Salem Mayor Chuck Bennett. “This is great news for our local economy and small businesses. Salem is looking forward to partnering with Amazon to create innovative jobs and develop a lasting relationship with our vibrant community.”

Associates at the one million square foot facility will pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as sports equipment, gardening tools, and pet food. (SV)
