Amazon opens ‘first-of-its-kind’ robotics manufacturing warehouse

Amazon has opened a new robotics manufacturing warehouse in Westborough, Massachusetts.

The facility is designed to expand upon the e-commerce giant’s existing Amazon Robotics manufacturing market in the US.

The new site has created more than 200 new manufacturing jobs.

The 350,000-square-foot building will feature corporate offices, research and development labs, and manufacturing space—in addition to Amazon Robotics’ current site in North Reading, Massachusetts. Amazon first began introducing robotics into its facilities in 2012.

“We care about the communities where we operate,” said vice president of Amazon Robotics, Joe Quinlivan. “This is why we are proud to expand high-tech robotics manufacturing in the U.S. and in Massachusetts specifically with the opening of this new facility.”

Quinlivan added: “As a company we have created more than 20,000 jobs in Massachusetts since 2010 in communities from Boston to Westborough and beyond. This latest addition to Amazon’s presence in the Commonwealth brings great jobs, from hourly manufacturing roles to engineers and developers working on advancements in robotics, to help our facilities run safely and meet our customers’ needs.”
