Amazon announced that it will invest 100 million dollars in two new distribution centers in Mexico, which will mean the creation of more than 1,500 direct and indirect jobs in different regions of the country.
Specifically, the US giant will expand its operations with the opening of new shipping centers in Apodaca, Nuevo León and in Tiajomulco (Jalisco); in addition to a building in the state of Mexico along with 12 new delivery stations throughout the country.
“The growth of Amazon’s operations in Mexico reflects the commitment to our clients in the country, while allowing us to offer an unsurpassed service and shopping experience”, explained the director of Amazon Operations and Fulfillment Services in Mexico, Diego Méndez de La Luz.
For his part, the governor of Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez Calderón, indicated that the company will find in the State “the necessary conditions to continue growing.”
“The United States has been for many years the main foreign investor in Nuevo León, it is our main ally, and this is due, among many things, to the strategic location we enjoy, having an international bridge and direct border with the country”, Rodriguez added.
Currently, Amazon’s operations in Mexico comprise five shipping centers, two support buildings, two sorting centers, and 27 delivery stations for logistics services.
