Amazon Announces Three S.A. Facilities in San Antonio – Bringing jobs into the City and Southern Sector
Today, Amazon announced its plans to open two new fulfillment centers and a new delivery station in San Antonio. The new operations together will create over 1,500 full-time jobs for San Antonians with highly competitive pay, outstanding benefits and training programs for in-demand careers.
One of the three facilities is a delivery station which will be located at Brooks, in District 3. This delivery station is expected to launch in 2021 and will create hundreds of full and part time jobs.
“This announcement is a great way to head into the New Year, during a time where we have needed some good news. I am thrilled Amazon has invested in and selected District 3 for their delivery station,” stated Councilwoman Viagran. “I have always been a champion for my District both as District 3 Councilmember and as Chair of the Economic & Workforce Development Committee. Amazon’s planned delivery station at Brooks further indicates that District 3 is an invaluable asset for San Antonio. The hundreds of additional jobs at Amazon will create more opportunities for residents to live, work and play in the Southside.
This announcement reinforces the City’s commitment to investing in a skilled workforce. Over the past several years, District 3 has been the centerpiece for new economic generation for the City of San Antonio with several major companies announcing creation or expansion of new facilities in the Southside, we are happy to have Amazon join this illustrious group bringing jobs to San Antonians.”
The 350,000 square-foot delivery station will power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process, where packages are transported to delivery stations from the Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers.
