LIVONIA, Mich. - Livonia's new Amazon fulfillment center held a special grand opening and tour of its facilities on Friday morning.
Elected officials and community leaders, including Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, took part in a tour of the Livonia center.
The tour offered an inside look at Amazon technologies and the day-to-day processes.
Operations began last fall for the Livonia Amazon center, which will house over 1,000 full-time employees who will pack and ship local orders.
Since 2016, Amazon has announced multiple facilities in Michigan including Livonia, Romulus, Brownstown Township and a corporate office in Detroit. That includes three fulfillment centers and one sortation center. Amazon will now employ 3,500 people in Michigan.
