Amazon Opens Fulfillment Center in Republic, Missouri

Amazon plans to open its first fulfillment center in Republic, Missouri. The new facility, which is anticipated to launch in 2021, will create over 500 full-time jobs.

“We are proud to be bringing our newest Amazon facility to the city of Republic along with over five hundred great full-time jobs with highly competitive pay, benefits from day-one, and ongoing training,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We are excited for our future in Missouri and for what this means for our customers across the state as we continue to grow. We’d like to thank the community of Republic and local and state leaders for their strong support in making this project possible.”

“Now more than ever, jobs like these are critical to Missourians and our economy,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “Amazon’s expansion in Republic and the 500 new jobs it will create will greatly impact the local community and Missouri as a whole. We are proud to see companies like Amazon growing in our state and creating more opportunities for our citizens.”

Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 4,500 jobs in Missouri and invested more than $780 million across the state, including infrastructure and compensation to our employees. Amazon’s investments have contributed more than $685 million in GDP to the Missouri economy and have helped create over 3,000 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires, from jobs in construction and logistics to professional services.
