Amazon to open new fulfillment centre in Michigan

Amazon.com has announced plans to open a new fulfillment centre in the Charter Township of Shelby, Michigan. When the site opens in 2018, Amazon will create 1,000 new full-time jobs with benefits. At the new one-million-square-foot fulfillment centre, employees will pick, pack and ship large items like household decor, sporting equipment and gardening tools.

“Michigan has been a great place to do business for Amazon and we look forward to adding a new fulfillment centre to better serve our customers in the region,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North American operations. “The state has been a source of exceptional talent for Amazon, and we’re proud to be creating great jobs with benefits for Michiganders.”

“Amazon’s announcement to open another new fulfillment centre in Michigan once again shows the company’s commitment to our state and the great people who live here,” Governor Rick Snyder said. “As we continue to see an increasing convergence between the tech and manufacturing sectors, Amazon’s continued investment here proves the value of Michigan’s diverse, hard-working talent pool and reformed business climate.”

Since 2016, Amazon has announced multiple facilities in Michigan including three fulfillment centres and one sortation centre in Livonia, Romulus, Brownstown and the Charter Township of Shelby, as well as a corporate office in Detroit. The new fulfillment centre will bring Amazon’s workforce in the Great Lakes State to more than 3,500.

“We are proud Amazon has made its home in Macomb,” said Macomb County executive Mark Hackel. “The economic advantage of Macomb County has aligned perfectly with the corporate growth strategy of Amazon. This partnership is built upon technological innovation, emerging workforce development, and community prosperity. Together with Amazon, we are bringing a million square foot fulfillment centre and 1,000 jobs to Macomb County.” (SV)
