Amazon announces plans to expand in Utah with new fulfilment centre

Amazon has announced plans to open a new fulfilment centre in West Jordan, Utah creating more than 800 full-time jobs.

Amazon employees at the more than 1m sq ft fulfilment centre will pick, pack and ship large customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, fishing rods, pet food, kayaks, bicycles, and larger household goods. 

There are more than 26,500 authors, small and medium-sized businesses, and developers in Utah growing their companies and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services. According to a report released last year, Utah has more small- and medium-sized businesses per capita selling their products on Amazon than any other state in the nation.
