SEATTLE — Amazon.com on Thursday announced two new fulfillment centers in Eastvale and Redlands, CA, which will create more than 2,000 new full-time associate roles when opened. Across the state, more than 15,000 full-time Amazon associates currently pick, pack and ship customer orders at the company’s nine existing Golden State fulfillment centers. A fulfillment center in Sacramento is currently under construction and is expected to open in 2017.

“2017 marks the five-year-anniversary of Amazon beginning to operate fulfillment centers in California,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North America Operations. “Within that time span, we’ve launched Career Choice, a program hundreds of Amazonian Californians have participated in to go back to school; we’ve supported the growth of hundreds of thousands of California businesses, authors, and developers that reach customers through Amazon.com, and we’ve continued to increase speed of delivery to customers throughout the state.”

At the one-million-square foot facility in Eastvale, developed by Goodman Group, associates will handle smaller sized customer items, such as books, electronics and toys. At the Redlands facility, which is over 750,000 square feet and developed by Prologis, associates will pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture and pet food.
