Amazon Chooses Pflugerville, Texas, for Fulfillment Center
“We’re appreciative of the people of Texas for so warmly embracing Amazon into the community,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “There are now over 20,000 Texan Amazonians working for us in the state, and we’re excited to be creating an additional 1,000 full-time jobs in Pflugerville with Amazon’s industry leading benefits, and minimum starting wage from $15 an hour.”
At the new fulfillment center employees will work alongside Amazon robotics to pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and toys.
“Serving our great city is an honor, and I am excited to see Pflugerville's continued growth during my service in office,” Mayor Victor Gonzales said. “Pflugerville is a bustling area, and the addition of this fulfillment center with over 1,000 jobs shows that Pflugerville is the new frontier in Central Texas. Pflugerville’s connectivity via the SH 130 corridor is a prime location for business expansion, and we welcome Amazon, a business that shares our belief that Pflugerville is a wonderful place to live and work.”
"We are establishing a strong partnership with Amazon and welcome the first operation of its kind to Pflugerville,” said Amy Madison, Executive Director of Pflugerville Community Development Corporation. “This economic development project brings a significant capital investment, new technology and needed employment to our diverse and skilled workforce which is a comprehensive win for all."
