This fall, Amazon will celebrate its ten year anniversary of fulfilling customer orders from the Phoenix area by opening a new center supporting customer fulfillment and unveiling an overhaul of its original Valley facility.
Together, the two facilities will create more than 1,000 new full-time positions for Phoenix’s economy, according to the company. The new jobs are on top of the 6,000 full-time workers Amazon now employs at four fulfillment centers and other locations throughout the state. A Prime Now hub, a sortation center, a customer/seller support center and corporate offices are also located in Arizona.
“Arizona has played an important role in Amazon’s history,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vp/North America customer fulfillment. “Our team in Arizona has been instrumental in providing outstanding customer experiences, raising the bar on our operational excellence, and continuing to innovate on behalf of the customer. Since our first day at the Buckeye Road facility, we’ve received amazing support from the community and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of the Arizona family.”
