Amazon to open Tucson fulfilment centre

Amazon has announced plans to open its first fulfilment centre in Tucson, Arizona.

The new centre will create more than 1,500 full-time jobs. Amazon currently employs more than 7,000 full-time associates at its four existing Arizona fulfillment centers and other facilities throughout the state.

“Since we first broke ground in Arizona over 10 years ago, we have found a network of support from community leaders to statewide officials, a dedicated workforce and fantastic customers,” said Mark Stewart, Vice President of Amazon’s North America Operations. “We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Tucson and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience.”

Earlier this week, Amazon also announced plans to open a new fulfilment centre in West Jefferson, Ohio.
