Amazon has confirmed its plans for a 193,000-square-meter Fulfillment Center in Świebodzin. This is the company’s tenth investment in Poland and its first in the Lubuskie region. Last year, Amazon launched operations at two new sites in the country – in Gliwice and in Lodz, bringing its total permanent workforce in the country to 18,000.
This new investment will add more than 1,000 new jobs to Amazon’s existing network in Poland. Employees hired at the new Amazon facility will pick, pack, and ship small items such as books, electronics, and consumer goods to customers. Associates will work alongside innovative technologies, including 3,000 Amazon Robotics drive units, which will be used to help fulfill customer orders. These specialized robots slide under shelves stocked with products, lift them, and move them around the Fulfillment Center, helping speed up order processing times and enabling both a better associate and customer experience. This will be Amazon’s third robotics facility in Poland, joining those already opened in Kolbaskowo near Szczecin and Gliwice.
Amazon has started recruiting for a range of newly created roles at the site, which include openings for engineers, HR and IT professionals, Health & Safety and Finance specialists, and Operations Managers.
