Amazon to Build 630K-SF Robotics Fulfillment Center in Tallahassee

Amazon has announced plans to build a new 630,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Tallahassee, FL.

Slated to begin construction in 2022, the facility will create more than 1,000 new, full-time jobs with benefits and opportunities to engage with advanced robotics. Employees at the fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship small items, such as books, electronics and toys to customers. The property will be located at 6720 Mahan Drive.

In addition, Amazon has announced plans for five other buildings in Florida, all delivery stations. The new delivery stations will be located in Melbourne, Riviera Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Myers and St. Petersburg.

“We’re excited to announce five new delivery stations as we continue to invest in the state of Florida,” said Holly Sullivan, Vice President of Worldwide Economic Development at Amazon. “The new facilities not only allow us to better serve our customers across the state, it allows us to create jobs and drive opportunity within the Sunshine State. We’re proud to have created more than 52,000 jobs and invested more than $18 billion in the state over the past decade.”
