Amazon is opening a new, one million square foot fulfilment centre in West Jordan, Utah. The new site will create more than 800 new full time jobs.
The new site will add to the 2,000 Amazon staff currently working in the state.
Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s Vice President of Global Customer Fulfilment said: “We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfilment centre in West Jordan and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience. Utah has a talented workforce, and we are very excited to grow employment beyond the more than 2,000 associates already serving customers in the state.”
Governor Gary R. Herbert commented: “We are pleased that Amazon has chosen Utah again for such a strategic part of Amazon’s business by setting up another fulfilment centre in West Jordan. As the ‘Crossroads of the West,’ Utah is the perfect place for companies in the distribution, fulfilment, and logistics industries to enjoy great success. This is another example of the strength of Utah’s economy and the high quality of life we enjoy.”
