Amazon is bringing more than 500 jobs to Fayetteville, with a new fulfillment center similar to this one in Tracy, Ca.

It’s been widely speculated, but now it can be marked as official: Amazon is building a huge new fulfillment facility, and bringing more than 500 jobs to Fayetteville in the process.

Fayetteville Cumberland County Economic Development Corporation (FCEDC) made the announcement official in a release Wednesday, saying that Amazon will build a 1.3 million-square-foot fulfillment facility in the Military Business Park, and expect to start tout with more than 500 jobs in Fayetteville. The business park is located near Bragg Blvd. and Santa Fe Dr. in north Fayetteville.

“Amazon is excited to expand operations in Cumberland County, North Carolina, investing in a new fulfilment center in Fayetteville,” said Nikki Forman, Amazon Spokesperson. “We are committed to providing efficient delivery for customers and creating hundreds of jobs for the talented workforce in the area.”

The Amazon facility is on 94 acres of land in the Military Business Park in Fayetteville and is expected to open in 2023. It becomes the second new Amazon facility to come to Cumberland County, joining the new “last-mile” facility being built on Dunn Road. Amazon is bringing several-hundred more jobs to Fayetteville with that delivery station facility.

“I welcome the significant positive impact that Amazon will make here,” Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin said. “The fact that Amazon has twice selected to invest in our area sends a strong signal to other potential employers about the many wonderful benefits this region has to offer, from our central location to the thriving workforce, and excellent business climate.”

FCEDC said the City of Fayetteville and Cumberland County have both approved up to $1.25 million in incentives to help with certain infrastructure improves on the site. Amazon must meet specific jobs and investment goals to receive those incentives in Fayetteville.

“This Amazon facility in the Military Business Park means hundreds of new jobs for our County, as well as economic growth and advancement. This transformative investment is a major win for our community,” said County Commission Chairman Glenn Adams. “A sincere thanks goes out to Amazon’s representatives as well as Cloteen Jasmin, Senior Vice President of Development at Ryan Companies, who have been collaborating with FCEDC on the project since April. This project has an incredibly aggressive timeline, and we cannot wait to celebrate its opening in 2023. Thanks to all those who collaborated to make this a success.”
