Amazon Will Build Robotics Facility in VA’s Henrico County

Amazon will build a robotics fulfillment center on 119 acres of ancillary land at Richmond Raceway in Virginia’s Henrico County. The multi-story, 650,000-square-foot facility will be the first of its kind in Central Virginia and is anticipated to launch in 2022.
“Amazon continues to demonstrate confidence in Virginia by expanding and reinvesting in our Commonwealth,” said Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam. “As we work to rebound from the impacts of the pandemic, we are grateful for Amazon’s commitment to supporting our communities and providing jobs to thousands of Virginians.”

The Seattle-based retailer first launched its Virginia fulfillment operations in 2006 in Sterling. Since then, the company has grown its operations network in the Commonwealth to include more than 10 fulfillment and sortation centers and delivery stations. In addition to the company’s Arlington headquarters, Amazon also has 13 Whole Foods Market locations statewide and three Prime Now Hubs.
