Amazon Opens Robotics Facility

Amazon is reported to be opening a new first-of-its-kind robotics manufacturing facility in Westborough, Massachusetts, expanding Amazon Robotics in the US, and creating 200 new manufacturing jobs in the process.

Amazon introduced robotics into its facilities in 2012 and has since added over a million new jobs worldwide.

“Massachusetts offers a highly talented workforce, and this Amazon facility opening further cements our state’s reputation as a key centre for robotics development,” said Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito as reported by the American Journal of Transportation

“The opening of this new state-of-the-art robotics facility creates new jobs for individuals across a wide range of skills and backgrounds in addition to the 1,500 new seasonal jobs Amazon has created in the Commonwealth as the company continues its investment in the state’s economic growth and development and I am pleased to be here for this opening, especially during STEM Week in Massachusetts.” said Ms Polito.

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

“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.” said Mr Quinlivan.
