Amazon Plans Fulfillment Center in West Jordan, Utah
Amazon employees at the more than one million-square-foot fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship large customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, fishing rods, pet food, kayaks, bicycles, and larger household goods. Amazon currently employs more than 2,000 full-time associates throughout the State of Utah.
“We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in West Jordan and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience. Utah has a talented workforce, and we are very excited to grow employment beyond the more than 2,000 associates already serving customers in the state,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s Vice President of Global Customer Fulfillment.
“We are pleased that Amazon has chosen Utah again for such a strategic part of Amazon’s business by setting up another fulfillment center in West Jordan. As the ‘Crossroads of the West,’ Utah is the perfect place for companies in the distribution, fulfillment, and logistics industries to enjoy great success. This is another example of the strength of Utah’s economy and the high quality of life we enjoy,” said Governor Gary R. Herbert.
“In Utah we have a workforce that is honest, hardworking, and productive. We hear from companies all the time that their Utah operations are their most efficient and productive because of the workforce that we have in our state. We are proud to welcome Amazon yet again and are excited to work with you,” added Governor Herbert.
“West Jordan is thrilled to welcome a new Amazon fulfillment center. Amazon’s decision to invest here reflects confidence in the City’s business environment and excellent workforce,” said Jim Riding, Mayor of West Jordan. “This project, with approximately 800 new jobs, will provide our residents with even greater opportunity to work close to home. To the folks at Amazon, thank you for selecting the City of West Jordan for this new facility. We are proud to partner with you and are encouraged by the additional growth this project will bring.”
