Amazon Fulfillment Center in Fishersville to bring 500 more jobs to Va.

Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Feb. 23 that Amazon will launch a new 1 million-square-foot non-sortable fulfillment center in Augusta County. The facility will open about a year from now at 32 Trader Road in Fishersville. It will be responsible for picking, packing, and shipping bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment, or rugs.

The new facility is expected to be operational in spring 2023 and will add 500 new jobs to Amazon’s existing workforce of more than 30,000 full- and part-time employees in the Commonwealth, the Governor’s news release said.

“Jump starting the economy is a top priority for my Administration, and we celebrate the 500 new jobs in Augusta County and a strengthened partnership with Amazon,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “Amazon’s new fulfillment center in Virginia is a testament to the Commonwealth’s exceptional infrastructure, competitive business costs, and long-term commitment that I’ve made to make sure we are developing talent and training workers to make Virginia the best state for business.” 

“We are proud to expand our Virginia operations with this Fishersville fulfillment center,” said Amazon’s Vice President of North America Customer Fulfillment Melissa Nick. “This facility joins two recently launched delivery stations in Waynesboro and Louisa and will be vital to our ability to serve customers and provide great selection and fast Prime shipping speeds across the region.”
