Amazon has announced plans to open a new Pittsburgh fulfilment centre (FC). This will be the 15th FC in the state of Pennsylvania.
According to the online giant, the FC will have more than 1 million square feet of space, some of which will be dedicated to large item picking and packing such as sports equipment and larger home goods.
“Pennsylvania is a great state for business and Amazon is excited to continue its growth and investment with our newest fulfilment centre in Allegheny County,” said Alicia Boler Davis, vice president of global customer fulfillment, Amazon.
“For nearly a decade, the Keystone state has been key to Amazon’s ability to serve our incredible customers and provide great selection and super-fast shipping speeds across the Northeast and Midwest regions of the U.S. Since 2010, the company has invested more than $8.5 billion in the state through its local fulfilment centre and cloud infrastructure, research facilities, and compensation to thousands of employees. We are excited to create more than 800 new full-time jobs, in addition to the 10,000 current employees across the state.”
