HARRISBURG, Pa. — Gov. Tom Wolf says Amazon plans to establish a warehouse and distribution facility in the Pittsburgh area that will bring more than 800 jobs to the region.
Amazon will open a non-sortable fulfillment center in Findlay Township near Pittsburgh International Airport, Wolf said, and the company has committed to investing more than $30 million into the project.
The company is getting $1.6 million in job creation tax credits from the state.
Amazon says on its website that employees at non-sortable fulfillment centers pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment, or rugs.
