Amazon to Open Fifth Facility in Southern Arizona
Amazon plans to open a new distribution facility in Marana, creating hundreds of new jobs with an economic impact of $4.3 million over the next 5 years.
To be known as the Silverbell Gateway Distribution Center, Amazon will build a 220,000-square-foot facility on a 65-acre site at the northeast corner of Ina and Silverbell in the Town of Marana.
This will be the fifth facility in the Tucson area for the online retail giant. Amazon first opened in Tucson with a massive 855,000-square-foot fulfillment center in 2019. Amazon has invested more than $16 billion and created more than 30,000 jobs in Arizona since 2010.
Project partners include the Town of Marana, Pima County and the Arizona Commerce Authority. Amazon continues to have great confidence in Tucson and Southern Arizona.
