Amazon plans to open a new 855,000-square-foot fulfilment centre in North Haven which will create more than 1,500 full-time jobs with opportunities for employees to engage with advanced robotics. The company currently has facilities in Wallingford and Windsor. Employees at the new centre will pick, pack and ship items such as electronics, books and toys.

“Five years after announcing our first fulfilment centre in Connecticut, we’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfilment centre in North Haven, creating 1,500 full-time jobs that offer wages 30 per cent higher than traditional retail roles and include comprehensive benefits on day one, bonuses and stock awards,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North America Operations.

“We’ve found an abundance of talent in Connecticut’s workforce, and we are so happy to have this opportunity to expand in the state to serve customers,” Chauhan said.

“This is a significant win for our state’s taxpayers and our economy. Amazon’s investment to expand operations in Connecticut is proof positive that when we work with companies and bring our collective ingenuity to bear, we deliver on creating jobs for the hardworking residents of our state,” said Governor Dannel P Malloy.

“With plans to nearly double their Connecticut-based employees, Amazon’s decision to open a third facility here is a testament to the high quality and productivity of our workforce,” Malloy said.

Amazon employees at the North Haven fulfilment centre will pick, pack and ship customer items such as electronics, books and toys. The facility will feature innovative technology such as Amazon Robotics that will assist employees in fulfilling customer orders.

“This is exciting news for the state of Connecticut and town of North Haven. I thank the governor’s administration and town officials for working in collaboration with all parties including state lawmakers and community members to show Amazon the remarkable potential of our town to be a new hub for business growth,” said State Senator Len Fasano, Senate Republican President Pro Tempore.
