Amazon Boosts Investment In Nevada

Amazon is continuing to invest in Nevada with eight new buildings across the state to support customer fulfillment and delivery operations. The sites are expected to create more than 2,000 permanent full- and part-time jobs.

The company broke ground in October on an 855,000 square-foot fulfillment center in North Las Vegas, creating 1,500 new full-time jobs when it opens in 2021. The site will be the second fulfillment center in the state using Amazon Robotics to help associates pick, pack and ship smaller items to customers.

The new sites also include five delivery stations that power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process, creating hundreds of permanent full-time and part-time jobs. Amazon’s new delivery stations in Nevada include locations in Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Reno.

Additionally, Amazon has hired hundreds of employees to support two additional facilities in North Las Vegas, including Merch by Amazon. This service enables brands, independent artists, and small businesses to upload custom content printed on demand on apparel and electronics products when ordered by customers in Amazon’s stores. And Print on Demand, which supports authors and publishers with Print on Demand, a service through which books are made on-demand when Amazon customers place an order.

“Amazon is proud to continue investing in the state of Nevada, where we opened our first fulfillment center in Fernley more than 20 years ago,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vp/global customer fulfillment. “We’re excited to create more than 2,000 new full- and part-time jobs across the state with highly competitive pay, benefits from day one and training programs for in-demand jobs.”
