Amazon is set to open its doors in western Sydney, with a huge fulfilment centre to be up and running by the end of the year.
The 43,000 square metre facility will pop up at the GOodman Centenary Distribution Centre in Moorebank.
This is set to trigger a lot of job growth in the area, according to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
"To have a global online shopping retailer choosing Sydney as a key location for its Australian operations is a huge win for NSW," Ms Berejiklian said.
"This will also give NSW small businesses a fantastic platform to take advantage of Amazon's distribution network to send their products to millions of customers across Australia.:
The centre will be twice as big as the current facility in Victoria.
“This boost for Moorebank is proof the NSW Government’s record investment in road and transport infrastructure is attracting major business investment and generating thousands of new jobs,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Since the Liberals & Nationals came to office in 2011 we have delivered more than 480,000 new jobs. The announcement by Amazon keeps NSW on track to have created a million new jobs by 2025.”
Positions available include operations, support and technical specialists.
