New operations facilities to create over 1,000 new, full-time jobs
Amazon.com, Inc. has announced plans to open two new fulfilment centres in Kansas, US. The new fulfilment centres, which are anticipated to launch in 2021, will together create over 1,000 new, full-time jobs with industry-leading pay and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.
In both of the new 92,900 m2 fulfilment centres located at 9700 Leavenworth Road in Kansas City, Kansas and at 7130 North Broadway Avenue in Park City, Kansas, Amazon associates will work to pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment, or rugs.
In addition to the two new fulfilment centres, Amazon also plans to open a new delivery station in Wichita, Kansas which is expected to launch later in 2020.
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 4,500 jobs in Kansas and invested more than US$2.9 billion across the state, including infrastructure and compensation to employees. These investments have contributed an additional US$2.3 billion in GDP to the Kansas economy and have helped create over 4,100 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires – from jobs in construction and logistics to professional services.
