Amazon debuts first Missouri fulfillment center
The latest Amazon fulfillment center is calling St. Peters, Missouri home.
It's the first center in Missouri, according to a press release. Amazon, however, does have a sortation center in Missouri, located in Hazelwood.
The St. Peters center workforce will hit just over 1,500 full-time employees.
"We're excited to continue growing our team with our first, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Missouri," said Sanjay Shah, Amazon's vice president of North America customer fulfillment, in the release. "Our ability to expand in Missouri is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce. Amazon is committed to providing great opportunities for employment and creating a positive economic impact for the region."
