Canton Leaders Tour Amazon Warehouse, Hiring Underway

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Canton city leaders took a tour of the massive Amazon warehouse off Columbus Road NE and Rebar Avenue last week.

Mayor Tom Bernabei says the company is now training supervisors and is beginning to hire associates.

He says we can anticipate the facility opening in four weeks.

There are storage systems running 40 feet high and state-of-the-art conveyors.

The Canton facility will supply larger items like furniture to other fulfillment centers, where it will then be delivered to customers.

The mayor says he was told Amazon will employ up to 1500 people over the holiday peak periods.
