Amazon plans to open two new fulfillment centers and a new delivery station in San Antonio, Texas. The new operations facilities will together create over 1,500 new full-time jobs.
Amazon is also planning a new 350,000 square-foot delivery station located at 8210 Aviation Landing. The delivery station, which is expected to launch in 2021, will create hundreds of full- and part-time jobs.
“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.”
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 43,000 jobs in Texas and invested more than $16.9 billion across the state, including infrastructure and compensation to its employees.
“We are thrilled to work closely with Amazon to support their growing presence in our region,” said Jenna Saucedo-Herrera, president & CEO of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation. “Together, these three new facilities in San Antonio will occupy more than two million sq. ft. and employ thousands of San Antonians who will work to deliver the great prime service many have come to rely on.”
