Amazon is going to build a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center right in our bay area…in Temple Terrace.

Plans are for it to open in 2021. This addition could create 750 new, full-time jobs for people in our area.

Amazon operates other fulfillment and sortation centers in Florida…in Jacksonville, Davenport, Orlando, Miami, Ruskin, and Lakeland.

“We’re excited to be growing our operations in Florida and we are excited to open a new fulfillment center in Temple Terrace,” said Alicia Boler Davis (in a release). She is Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “Amazon is committed to providing great jobs with industry leading pay and benefits, starting on day one, in a safe, innovative work environment. Amazon is grateful for the continued support we’ve received from local and state leaders and we look forward to creating over seven hundred jobs for the Temple Terrace community.”

The new facility will be more than 600,000 square feet on the ground floor.
