Amazon plans first fulfillment center in Port St. Lucie Florida

CATEGORY: Amazon News

Amazon have announced that they are planning to open their first fulfillment center in Port St. Lucie Florida. The site is anticipated to launch in 2022 and will open up more job opportunities and greater fulfillment capabilities for Amazon businesses in the area.

“We’re excited to expand our network to better serve our customers in Port St. Lucie. We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders as we broaden our footprint throughout the Sunshine State. We look forward to bringing more than 500 good jobs to St. Lucie County and contributing positively to the community.”
– Mark Marzano, Director of Operations at Amazon

Amazon may be a large global business, but it’s truly made up of small businesses and communities. From the local jobs the company brings, to the local people, Amazon employs, trains, and upskills. Amazon also plans to hire for roles in human resources, operations management, safety, security, finance and information technology to name a few.

Amazon currently employs more than 52,000 full-time associates throughout the state of Florida and has fulfillment and sortation centers in Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.

“This latest, in a series of substantial corporate investments, shows the commitment of the county to stabilize our economy and ensure the employment options for all residents of our community. It is also a testament of how the outside corporate world sees the benefit of local government cooperation that offers certainty and speed-to-market. Without the stability created through government agency cooperation, these investments would likely not come our way.”
– Chris Dzadovsky, Commission Chair, St. Lucie County
