Amazon plans to open a fulfillment center in Deltona, Florida. The new facility will create 500 new full-time jobs in the region.
“We’re excited to continue our investment in Florida and further expand our presence in the state with this new fulfillment center in Deltona. Since 2013, Amazon has invested more than $5 billion in Florida through local fulfillment centers and cloud infrastructure, research facilities, and compensation to thousands of employees in the state,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment.
“Amazon is proving that by investing in modern supply chains, consumers are well-served, environmental impacts are minimized, and infrastructure is best utilized. I look forward to the positive impacts this center will have on Volusia County,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.
“Deltona’s strategic location along the I-4 Corridor will serve Amazon well, and hosting Amazon telegraphs the fact that Deltona is open for business,” said Mayor Heidi Herzberg. “Analysis of the site confirms it as a prime location. And Amazon’s selection of the site represents great employment and economic development opportunities for Deltona, its residents and neighboring communities.”
Amazon has created more than 13,500 full-time jobs in Florida since first launching fulfillment operations in the Sunshine State in 2013. Currently, Amazon operates facilities in Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville.
