Amazon Expands in Oregon
Amazon will build a five-story, 3.84 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Woodburn on about 90 acres of land that could employ about 1,875 people.
This will be one of the largest buildings in Oregon history according to the Bend Bulletin.
Amazon currently employees nearly 13,000 people in Oregon.
They purchased around 130 acres the last week of June, for more than $27 million for the land according to OregonLive.
It is scheduled to open in 2023.
Amazon currently operates fulfillment centers in Hillsboro, Portland, Salem, and Troutdale.
Amazon is not yet hiring for the new Woodburn location, but the company continues to hire new full and part-time associates in Oregon.
