Amazon to expand its operations in Utah

Amazon.com is to open a new fulfilment centre in West Jordan, Utah creating more than 800 full-time jobs.

Amazon currently employs more than 2,000 full-time associates throughout the State of Utah.

Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s Vice President of Global Customer Fulfilment said:  “We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfilment centre 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.”

Governor Gary R. Herbert commented: “We are pleased that Amazon has chosen Utah again for such a strategic part of Amazon’s business by setting up another fulfilment centre in West Jordan. As the ‘Crossroads of the West,’ Utah is the perfect place for companies in the distribution, fulfilment, 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.”

Amazon employees at the more than one million-square-foot fulfilment centre will pick, pack and ship large customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, fishing rods, pet food, kayaks, bicycles, and larger household goods.

All associates will go through hours of safety training and have access to continuing education opportunities through Amazon’s upskilling programs such as Career Choice. In this program, the company will pre-pay up to 95% of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon.

According to a report released last year, Utah has more small- and medium-sized businesses per capita selling their products on Amazon than any other state in the nation.
