Amazon to open a new fulfillment centre in New York
Sep '17
Amazon has announced plans for a new fulfillment centre in Staten Island, New York. The facility is Amazon’s first fulfillment centre in the state and will create more than 2,250 new, full-time jobs. The employees at the fulfillment centre will work alongside robotics to pick, pack and ship customer items such as household essentials, books and toys.

“We are excited to bring our first fulfillment centre to New York and work alongside the state’s incredible workforce,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of Customer Fulfillment. “The support of local leaders has been instrumental in our ability to come to New York, and we are grateful for the welcome we’ve received to bring thousands of new jobs with benefits starting on day one.”

“Amazon’s decision to establish the first state-of-the-art fulfillment centre in New York affirms our position at the forefront of the growing global innovation economy, and this investment will create thousands of jobs and opportunities for the Staten Island community,” said Governor Andrew M Cuomo. “New York continues to demonstrate that we have the workforce, technology, and the pro-business climate to help companies grow and succeed.”

The facility will feature innovative technology such as Amazon Robotics that will assist employees in fulfilling customer orders.

“We’ve been talking about the West Shore of Staten Island as our borough’s ‘Jobs Coast,’ and today that talk becomes reality in a big way. In fact, this project will be the biggest single job creator in our borough’s history,” said Staten Island Borough President James S Oddo. “These jobs are being created by the private sector doing what it does best, and our role at Borough Hall has been to help Matrix and Amazon navigate. This announcement demonstrates that Staten Island is open for business.”

The Staten Island project is being developed by Matrix Development Group.

"We are excited to see Amazon choose to significantly expand its footprint in New York State,” said empire state development president, CEO, and commissioner Howard Zemsky. “This project will create thousands of jobs for New Yorkers in a rapidly-growing industry and proves that our tech economy’s momentum is stronger than ever before.” (SV)
