Amazon launches major distribution centre in Swansea

Online retailer Amazon has announced that it has opened a major new distribution centre in South Wales.

The company is now seeking more than 1,000 new workers to staff the 800,000 sq ft site at Swansea Bay, located on 33 acres of land near the city’s seaport.

According to Amazon, hundreds more jobs will be created in the area over the next five years and the new centre is the company’s fourth and largest distribution facility in Britain.

The US retail giant has sites at Glenrothes and Gourock in Scotland and Milton Keynes in the south of England.

Amazon’s new Swansea centre, built by Australian construction firm Macquarie Goodman, will play a key role in meeting current and future demand, as the company continues to see profits rise from the continued growth of Britain’s internet shopping sector.

Swansea is the second largest city in Wales and the opening of the new centre speeded up building of a new access road to Jersey Marine in Swansea, where the centre is located.
