Amazon Fulfillment Center In California Ready For Opening

October 17, 2012—Amazon.com made headlines earlier this week when they announced they would be hiring over 50,000 seasonal employees for the upcoming busy holiday months. Now Amazon is making noise in California as construction of one of their fulfillment centers in San Bernardino is finally completed, promising over 1,000 potential jobs to residents.

To fight back online sales tax, Amazon.com decided to build new fulfillment centers all across United States with two new facilities being locating in California. California law allows Amazon to designate which city is a “point of sale” to receive one cent on the dollar for all sales process through fulfillment centers in that location.

Although construction didn’t start until April, the work on the new fulfillment centers finished two weeks ahead of schedule showcasing how enthusiastic the city is about the opportunity Amazon is giving them.

“We are ecstatic about the fact that they’re employing – right now they’re ramping up to employ for the season probably 1,500 people,” Mayor Pat Morris said. “They’ve already got hundreds on board, and many more to come.”

The new 950,000-square-foot Amazon Fulfillment center is located at the former Norton Air Force Base at the corner of Tippecanoe and Central avenues in San Bernardino, CA. Amazon plans to announce the number of jobs at a news conference later this week.
