Amazon.com Plans Fulfillment Center In Troutdale, Oregon
The company currently operates a sortation center in Hillsboro and Prime Now hub in Portland. Additionally, there are more than 40,000 authors, sellers, and developers in Oregon growing their businesses and reaching new customers via Amazon products and services.
Amazon employees at the 855,000-square-foot Troutdale fulfillment center will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.
“We are excited to bring our first fulfillment center to the state of Oregon, creating 1,500 full-time jobs in Troutdale,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Operations. “Governor Brown, the city of Troutdale, and many others have been instrumental in our decision to locate the new fulfillment center in the area, and we appreciate the support we’ve received to bring new jobs and investment to Oregon.”
“Amazon’s expansion in Oregon brings us great jobs with competitive wages and bright futures for its employees and communities,” said Governor Kate Brown. “I’m committed to building a talented workforce that can take advantage of opportunities to work alongside innovative technology and have access to continuing education programming.”
“We’re proud that Amazon chose Troutdale for its first Oregon fulfillment center,” said Troutdale Mayor Casey Ryan. “Troutdale has an excellent workforce, is strategically located to support Amazon’s growing customer fulfillment operations and we are thrilled to be long-term partners with this innovative company. Amazon has demonstrated it wants to work with our community to spur positive economic growth through job creation, partnership with local businesses and philanthropic activities, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
