MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Governor Kay Ivey today announced that Amazon.com Inc. plans to open three new operations facilities in Alabama while also launching a new fulfilment center that will support customer deliveries across the state.
The projects — located in Huntsville, Montgomery and Birmingham — will ultimately create over 900 jobs at the new facilities. In addition, Amazon said it plans to add more than 500 full-time positions in Alabama before the end of 2021, with preparations made for another 1,800 available seasonal jobs.
“Amazon’s decision to simultaneously launch and announce these projects in Alabama shows the high level of confidence the company has in the abilities of our hard-working citizens, who have shown time and time again that they can get the job done,” Governor Ivey said.
“Companies from around the world have discovered that Alabama offers them all the ingredients of success, and this is another prime example.”
