Amazon sets up fulfilment centre in Ontario
Amazon has announced plans for a new fulfilment centre in Scarborough, in the city of Toronto (Canada). The 93,000 sqm facility will create more than 600 full-time jobs with comprehensive benefits. This will be Amazon’s twelfth fulfilment centre in the country, and the seventh in Ontario.
Amazon currently employs more than 4,000 full-time associates in Ontario, and an additional 1,000 employees at its two Toronto tech hub locations. “We’re excited about our growth in Toronto, which gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the region,” said Vibhore Arora, director of regional operations of Amazon Canada.
“The greater Toronto area has a talented workforce, and we are committed to providing the area with job opportunities that have great pay and benefits.” Associates at this robotics facility will pick, pack, and ship small items to customers ranging from toys and baby products to small electronics.
