Amazon plans to launch a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center and delivery station in Virginia Beach, the state’s governor announced Sept. 25.

Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s office said Amazon will establish a multi-story robotics fulfillment center and delivery station, which expects to bring more than 1,000 new full-time jobs.

The new robotics center is anticipated to launch in 2025, with the delivery station anticipated to launch in 2024 in time for the holiday season, according to the governor’s office.

“Amazon’s cutting-edge fulfillment centers generate major capital investment and thousands of jobs and strengthen Virginia’s position as a logistics industry leader on the East Coast,” Youngkin said. “We see Amazon’s expanding footprint impacting economic growth and innovation across the Commonwealth, and we will continue to compete for additional investment in Virginia.”

Amazon first launched its Virginia fulfillment operations in 2006 with a center in the city of Sterling. The new Virginia Beach facilities will be the company’s 14th fulfillment and sortation center in Virginia, as well as its 17th delivery station.
