Amazon opening three Kansas supply chain facilities

Amazon’s plans for Kansas include two new one million-sq.-foot fulfillment centers.

The new fulfillment centers are anticipated to open in 2021, in Kansas City and Park City, respectively. The facilities will together create over 1,000 new, full-time jobs. Amazon associates will work to pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment, or rugs.

In addition to the two new fulfillment centers, Amazon also plans to open a new delivery station in Wichita, Kansas, later in 2020.

“We’re excited to continue our growth and investment across Kansas so we can better serve our customers throughout the state,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon VP of global customer fulfillment. “We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders, and we look forward to ingraining ourselves in the communities in which we serve.”

Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 4,500 jobs in Kansas and invested more than $2.9 billion across the state, including infrastructure and compensation to employees. According to Amazon, these investments have contributed an additional $2.3 billion in GDP to the Kansas economy and have helped create over 4,100 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires. In addition, more than 10,500 independent authors and small and medium businesses in Kansas are selling to customers in Amazon’s store, which the e-tailer says creates thousands of additional jobs across the state.
