Amazon to open new fulfilment centre in Bristol

Amazon is to open a new fulfilment centre in Bristol in 2018. The facility will create more than 1,000 new permanent jobs.

Recruitment will begin next year for a range of new positions such as operations managers, engineers, HR and IT specialists.

“We are very excited to expand our network into Bristol, which will in total create more than 1,000 new permanent roles with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one,” said Stefano Perego, Amazon’s director of UK customer fulfilment.  “There are several factors we consider when deciding on where to place a new fulfilment centre, and Bristol offers fantastic infrastructure and talented local people who we look forward to joining the Amazon team.”

The Bristol site will be fitted out with advanced Amazon Robotics technology.

Perego added: “Bristol fulfilment centre will be equipped with Amazon Robotics technology, the latest example of our commitment to invention in logistics on behalf of our employees and our customers.”

Amazon has invested £6.4 billion in the UK since 2010 in its UK-based research and development, head office and fulfilment and logistics infrastructure.

The retailer has previously announced that it would open fulfilment centres in Dunstable, Doncaster, Tilbury and Warrington in 2017, thereby creating more than 3,500 new permanent jobs. The Daventry site opened in February while Doncaster, Warrington and Tilbury will begin operations in the autumn.

Amazon currently has 13 fulfilment centres in the UK. In addition to the the recently opened Daventry site, there are two facilities in Doncaster and one each in Coalville, Dunfermline, Dunstable, Gourock, Hemel Hempstead, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Rugeley and Swansea Bay.
