Amazon expands western Sydney operations

Amazon Australia has announced plans to invest $490 million in opening two new fulfilment centres (FC) in western Sydney’s Horsley Park by early 2026.

Once fully operational, the two facilities will create over 1000 local jobs, ranging from entry level roles with on-the-job training, to skilled roles in areas such as operations, HR, engineering and workplace health and safety.

Yesterday (9 April), ground was broken on one of the new FC at Goodman and Brickworks’ Oakdale East Industrial Estate. This purpose-built facility will be around four-and-a-half times the size of the Sydney Opera House (80,000sqm) and has capacity to hold up to 1.6 million large items sold on Amazon.

The second FC is a fit out of an existing building. The 33,400sqm site, which will have the capacity to hold up to 600,000 larger items, is set to open later this year.

“Amazon Australia’s investment in two new facilities in western Sydney will expand our operational footprint in this area which will provide customers with wider selection and faster delivery,” says Amazon Australia Operations Manager Sandra McNeil.

“We’re committed to improving selection and delivery speed as demand continues to grow, as well as being dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we operate. We’re proud to be able to provide more local job opportunities and look forward to working with the NSW government to continue our investment in the western Sydney area.”
