Montgomery will be home to a $100 million, 500-worker IXD facility, city and state officials announced today. That’s one of three new Amazon projects that Gov. Kay Ivey included in her announcement.
In addition to the Montgomery facility, Amazon plans a Birmingham delivery station that will employ about 150 people and a Huntsville fulfillment center that will employ about 250.
Montgomery will be the home of the first Amazon IXD facility — or inbound cross dock receive center — in Alabama.
“We are proud to welcome Amazon to Montgomery County and into this growing community of diverse industries,” said County Commission Chairman Elton Dean. “This facility will provide excellent opportunities for our citizens and pave the way for even more growth and investment in our area.”
The Birmingham delivery station will open in November, followed by the Huntsville and Montgomery facilities in 2022.
They will join a fulfillment center in Bessemer, a sortation center in Mobile and delivery stations in Birmingham. The company has created more than 9,000 jobs statewide and invested more than $1 billion in Alabama.
“Amazon’s presence in Alabama helps the state’s economic development team advance its goal of recruiting high-caliber projects with technology-focused jobs,” Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield said. “This is a priority as we continue to work toward evolving Alabama’s economy and preparing our workers for 21st-century careers.”
