Amazon To Open Pittsburgh Fulfillment Center

Amazon said it plans to open its 15th Pennsylvanian operations facility in Pittsburgh, creating more than 800 new, full-time jobs.

The fulfillment center will be more than 1 million square feet and Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, kayaks and larger home goods.

“Pennsylvania is a great state for business and Amazon is excited to continue its growth and investment with our newest fulfillment center in Allegheny County,” said Alicia Boler Davis, vp/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 fulfillment center and cloud infrastructure, research facilities, and compensation to thousands of employees.”
