Booming New South Wales jobs market has been given a boost with the global online retailer, Amazon, choosing Sydney’s south-west for its biggest fulfilment centre in Australia.

The company will open a 43,000 sqm facility at the Goodman Centenary Distribution Centre at Moorebank in the second half of the year.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian welcomed the news.

“To have a global online shopping retailer choosing Sydney as a key location for its Australian operations is a huge win for New South Wales.” Premier Berejiklian said.

“This will also give New South Wales small businesses a fantastic platform to take advantage of Amazon’s distribution network to send their products to millions of customers across Australia.”

Moorebank fulfilment centre is almost double the size of Amazon’s current facility in Victoria and builds on the hundreds of jobs the company has already created.

“This boost for Moorebank is proof the New South Wales Government’s record investment in road and transport infrastructure is attracting major business investment and generating thousands of new jobs.” Premier Berejiklian said.

“Since the Liberals & Nationals came to office in 2011 we have delivered more than 480,000 new jobs. The announcement by Amazon keeps NSW on track to have created a million new jobs by 2025.”

Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons welcomed the decision.

“Our community welcomes Amazon for the jobs this investment will bring to Moorebank.” Ms. Gibbons said.

“New South Wales Government is encouraging investment in Western Sydney, which has led to the lowest unemployment rate in our region, on record.”

Amazon plans to open its new Moorebank facility later this year, and positions available will include operations, support and technical specialists.
