Amazon Reports Two New Fulfillment Centers and New Delivery Station in Texas

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) has announced plans to open two new fulfillment centers and a new delivery station in San Antonio, Texas.  These new facilities will create over 1,500 new full-time positions.  “We’re thrilled to be able to continue our growth throughout the San Antonio area,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “Amazon is a great place to work with highly competitive pay, benefits from day one, and training programs for in-demand careers. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from local and state leaders and look forward to creating over 1,500 new, full-time jobs for the San Antonio community.”  “The Lone Star State is proud to welcome Amazon’s expansion in the San Antonio region,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “In what continues to be a strong partnership between Amazon and Texas, these facilities will integrate state-of-the-art robotics working alongside Amazon associates to serve customers throughout the region. We are proud that Texas’ business-friendly model continues to attract innovative companies like Amazon.”

Amazon also plans a new 350,000 square foot delivery station at 8210 Aviation Landing.  Packages are transported to delivery stations from the Amazon fulfillment and sort centers then loaded onto vehicles for delivery for customers.  The delivery station is expected to launch in 2021.  “San Antonio’s diverse industries, skilled workforce, and sustainable infrastructure make us resilient and we are ready to support significant growth from tech-focused companies like Amazon,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg, City of San Antonio. “We look forward to supporting Amazon as they grow and hire more than 1,500 San Antonians.”
