04/05/2018
Amazon plans to open its fourth facility supporting customer fulfillment in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The company plans to create more than 1,000 full-time jobs.

Amazon employees at the more than 800,000-square-foot fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, household items and toys. The company currently employs more than 3,000 full-time associates at its three existing Nevada facilities in North Las Vegas and Reno.

"We're excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in North Las Vegas and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience. Nevada has a talented workforce, and we are very excited to grow employment beyond the more than 3,000 associates already serving customers in the state," said Sanjay Shah, Amazon's Vice President of North America Customer Fulfillment.

"This is good news for our state and for North Las Vegas," Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said. "With the creation of a new 800,000 square-foot fulfillment center, Amazon will help create an additional 1,000 jobs in Nevada. Amazon has been a partner with Nevada in helping to grow our economy, and I am pleased that they will continue to be a partner with us into the future."

"The rapidly expanding presence of Amazon in North Las Vegas speaks to the relationship the City has cultivated with the company and the ease and speed of doing business in North Las Vegas, efforts that are paying off in dividends by creating thousands of jobs for our hardworking residents and growing our City's tax base," North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee said. "This first-of-its-kind facility for Nevada highlights the innovation and technology that North Las Vegas has come to be known for, and we wish Amazon ongoing success as our organizations continue to grow together."

"The dedication and commitment from Clark County and the City of North Las Vegas were instrumental in making this effort possible," said Keith Earnest, Executive Vice President at VanTrust.
