Amazon planned to open “in the summer of 2021” a large warehouse located in the metropolis of Metz and promised, Tuesday, May 4, the creation of 1,000 permanent jobs within three years. This “distribution center” will be implanted on the former air base of the Frescaty plateau, located in the town of Augny. It represents an area “50,000 m2 on the ground, optimized on 4 levels”, according to a statement from the American online sales giant.
Amazon, which plans to employ “14,500 employees on permanent contracts in France” at the end of 2021, “has already started recruiting for this site, in particular for managerial and maintenance technician positions to be filled now”. “The recruitment campaign that is opening marks the culmination of a project carried out hand in hand with local actors for several years.“, said in the press release Ronan Bolé, director of Amazon Logistics in France.
This site is Amazon’s eighth distribution center in France, after Saran (Loiret), Montélimar (Drôme), Sevrey (Saône-et-Loire), Lauwin-Planque (Nord), Boves (Somme), Brétigny-sur- Barley (Essonne) and Senlis (Oise). About sixty people, from political parties and associations, as well as residents, demonstrated against this establishment in January 2020.
