By Dan Wilson April 5, 2018 - 2:56 pm

Amazon has announced plans to open in and Amazon FC in North Las Vegas. It will be its fourth Nevada facility supporting customer fulfillment, creating more than 1000 full-time jobs with benefits starting on day one. Amazon currently employs more than 3,000 full-time associates at its three existing Nevada facilities in North Las Vegas and Reno.

We’re excited to open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in North Las Vegas and to continue innovating in a state committed to providing great opportunities for jobs and customer experience. Nevada has a talented workforce, and we are very excited to grow employment beyond the more than 3,000 associates already serving customers in the state.
– Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Customer Fulfillment

Amazon says it has invested millions of dollars into its local fulfillment centre infrastructure and through compensation to thousands of employees in the state. Amazon’s investments in Nevada contributed an additional $50 million into Nevada’s economy from 2011 through 2016, and using methodology developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 1300 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires.

This is good news for our state and for North Las Vegas. With the creation of a new 800,000 square-foot fulfillment center, Amazon will help create an additional 1,000 jobs in Nevada. Amazon has been a partner with Nevada in helping to grow our economy, and I am pleased that they will continue to be a partner with us into the future.
– Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval

Amazon employees at the more than 800,000-square-foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, household items and toys.

    “using methodology developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 1300 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires.”
    – I assume this methodology conveniently ignores all the negatives, high street and retail jobs lost, etc etc? very handy methodology that.

      I agree with you on this one James. A clear picture cannot be seen unless all factors are considered.
