Robotics to feature in Amazon's new Bolton DC
16 October 2017
Amazon has announced plans to open a new fulfilment centre in Bolton in 2018 and begin recruitment for 1,200 new, full-time permanent jobs.
The investment in a new fulfilment centre in Bolton will take the total number of permanent jobs Amazon has created in the North West of England to more than 3,500.
“Our ability to expand in the North West of England is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce,” said Stefano Perego, Amazon’s Director of UK Customer Fulfilment. “We are thrilled to begin recruitment for 1,200 new permanent roles in Bolton with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”
Bolton will be equipped with advanced Amazon Robotics technology. The robots slide under a tower of shelves where products are stowed, lift it and move it through the fulfilment centre. Find out more about Amazon Robotics here.
