Amazon expands in former Levi’s factory in Warsaw | News from local businesses
Warsaw city officials announced on Friday that Amazon will open a distribution center at the former Levi Strauss factory in the city of Northern Neck.
A press release from the city said the internet retailer plans to eventually operate three teams with a combined total workforce of 90 to 100 part-time and full-time employees.
The facility will be a “last mile” distribution center that will process all Amazon orders for the North Neck region and surrounding communities. The goods will be received from major distribution centers in Richmond and Charlottesville and will then be processed, handled and delivered from the Warsaw facility, the statement said.
The distribution center will share space in the former Levi’s building with Herbalife, which now employs nearly 80 full-time staff and plans to grow to 150 in the near future.
“We’ve certainly dug our heels on this one to make sure they call Warsaw home,” Managing Director Joseph Quesenberry said in the statement. “It’s not often that you land two multi-billion dollar companies in a city of 1,800 people, but we’re proud to say that we did with the Amazon and Herbalife expansions in the same. installation.”
