“We are excited to join the Orlando community, creating more than 1,500 full-time jobs at our new fulfillment centre,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations. “We very much appreciate the state and local elected leaders who have supported Amazon’s arrival in Orlando and we look forward to bringing more jobs and investment to the state in the coming months.”

“I am proud that Amazon has chosen the Orlando area as the best location for their new fulfillment centre. Amazon is already a major job creator in Florida, and we’re proud that they are continuing to invest in our state and create new opportunities for our families,” said Governor Rick Scott. “Today’s announcement is a reminder of the important role of Enterprise Florida and local economic development agencies who have worked to market our state so we can outcompete other locations for these major jobs wins.”

The new fulfillment centre will bring Amazon’s workforce in the Sunshine State to more than 9,000.
