Allegheny County, state and local officials break ground on new $30 million Amazon fulfillment center in Findlay Twp.
FINDLAY TWP. — Online behemoth Amazon has broken ground on a new 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Findlay Township near Interstate 576.
Officials from the state, Allegheny County and Findlay gathered at the site at 1200 Westport Road on Wednesday to mark the construction of Amazon’s 11th fulfillment center in Pennsylvania and its first in the Pittsburgh region, according to a press release.
“The new Imperial Amazon location will provide residents with job opportunities beyond just within the fulfillment center,” state Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin said in the release.
“The construction process itself will provide thousands of additional jobs for Allegheny County families and we are eager to continue our partnership with Amazon in Pennsylvania,” he said, “as they continue to support smaller businesses and developers through their products and services.”
Once it is operational, employees at the center will ship larger items, such as patio furniture, sports equipment, pet food and household goods, the release said.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced the $30 million project in July, saying that Amazon received a $1.6 million proposal for job-creation tax credits through the state Department of Community and Economic Development.
The fulfillment center is anticipated to have more than 800 full-time jobs paying at least $15 per hour. Amazon already has about 10,000 full-time employees in Pennsylvania, the release said.
