The new Amazon complex on Albuquerque’s West Side is expanding even more. The facility has quickly become one of the biggest employers in the metro area.
"We had been seeing activity at that site for a while and just kind of had the feeling that more growth was coming,” said Rachel Sams, editor-in-chief of Albuquerque Business First.
Sams said she wasn’t entirely surprised that Amazon had bigger plans for the Duke City, but the scale of what the company is doing was something else.
"When we heard it was two new sites with hundreds of jobs— that was a little more than what we had anticipated,” she said.
In addition to the Amazon Fulfillment Center, which is currently under construction, another sorting facility center is also planned. The sorting center will act as the “middle man” after packages are ordered, and before they get sent out for shipping.
