Amazon Fulfillment Centers Set Stage for Future Development in Greater Silicon Valley
January 23, 2015
Amazon hosted a grand opening for its new fulfillment centers in Tracy and Patterson. The event highlighted their high-tech inventory and order fulfillment process that feature autonomous robots.
For Michael Ammann, chief executive of the San Joaquin Partnership, Amazon’s warehouse is the realization of his economic development agency’s labeling San Joaquin County as part of the “Greater Silicon Valley.”
“We’ve set the table for future development and Amazon is something we can use to continue to grow within the sophisticated fulfillment market,” he said. “It’s a headliner, there ‘s no doubt about that, but others will apply similar types of distribution technology.”
