Amazon announces new East Midlands fulfilment centre
Amazon has announced plans to open a new fulfilment centre in Kegworth, East Midlands, and will begin recruitment for more than 500 new permanent jobs.
The retailer said the move will further increase its product selection and support more third-party sellers under its Fulfilment by Amazon programme.
Kegworth will be the fifth Amazon fulfilment centre in the Midlands and will be joined by facilities in Coalville, Daventry, Rugeley and Rugby, which will open later this year.
Stefano Perego, Amazon’s Vice President of UK Customer Fulfilment, said. “We are delighted to expand our operations in the East Midlands. With capacity to expand our workforce to over 1,000 permanent positions in the future, this new team will play a crucial role in delivering a first-rate level of service for our customers.”
