Cannock Chase Council’s Economic Development Leader has expressed his delight at Amazon’s decision to open a new processing unit in Rugeley
The online retail giant Amazon says it will be creating around 900 jobs when it moves into the 700,000 sq ft Flair building at G Park in Rugeley town. The centre will start processing orders from September and will deal with customers from the UK and across the world.
The use of the building is a great boost with the jobs and spin off business opportunities expected.
Cllr Gordon Alcott, Cannock Chase Council Economic Development and Planning Leader, said: “I’m absolutely delighted by Amazon’s decision to invest in Rugeley. This is very positive news indeed. The hundreds of jobs to be created will be a massive boost to the local economy and a great opportunity for the many people across the District desperate to get into work.
“Amazon is the one of the biggest operations in the world and it is a huge boost to have them in the District. We have some of the best employment parks and development opportunities in the Midlands, as well as links to the M6 Toll right on our doorstep, so we’re delighted that they’ve seen the huge potential of this District.
“The Council will be working with Amazon and Jobcentre Plus to ensure that Amazon’s arrival in Rugeley brings maximum benefits to the local economy and to the people of Cannock Chase District.”
