SEATTLE — Amazon.com on Friday announced plans to open its 10th California fulfillment center in Sacramento. The new facility, the fourth California fulfillment center Amazon has announced within a span of four months, will create over 1,000 full-time hourly roles.
In addition to the recently announced fulfillment centers in north Sacramento, Tracy and Eastvale, Amazon currently fulfills customer orders at its seven Golden State facilities in Moreno Valley, Patterson, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino and Tracy. The company also operates sortation centers in Newark and San Bernardino.
“Our ongoing expansion in California, which started just four short years ago, is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce in this state,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s Vice President of North American Operations. “Customers are seeing on a regular basis Amazon’s customer obsession, innovative culture, and operational excellence — all of which is driven by the 14,000-plus Californians who work in Amazon fulfillment centers across the state. We are incredibly proud of what has been accomplished in California.”
Amazon employees at the 855,000-plus-square-foot Sacramento fulfillment center will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.
