Amazon opens new robotics facility in the USA

Amazon opens new robotics facility in the USAAmazon recently opened a new ‘state of the art’ robotics manufacturing facility in Westborough, Massachusetts which will expand Amazon Robotics manufacturing capability in the USA and Amazon’s growth in the region — it has also created over 200 new manufacturing jobs.

The company began introducing robotics into its facilities in 2012 and has since added over a million new jobs worldwide.

Karyn Polito, Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor, said: “The opening of this new ‘state of the art’ robotics facility creates new jobs for individuals across a wide range of skills and backgrounds in addition to the 1,500 new seasonal jobs and I am pleased to be here for this opening, especially during STEM Week in Massachusetts.”

With this new site, Amazon Robotics will continue to grow its engineering, manufacturing, support, and test teams in Massachusetts. The 350,000ft2 facility will feature corporate offices, research and development laboratories, and manufacturing space—in addition to Amazon Robotics’ current site in North Reading, Massachusetts. Together, these two facilities serve as an epicentre of the company’s robotics innovation.

Manufacturing of Amazon Robotics mobile drive units will be a primary focus in the facility. Since 2012, when Amazon first began introducing robotics into its facilities, the company has added over a million new jobs worldwide while installing more than 350,000 drive units across its facilities. These drive units and other robotic technologies work closely with employees to help safely and reliably fulfill customer orders.
