Amazon is going to build two new Robotics fulfillment centers in Matteson and Markham. Attorney, Brian Liston from Liston & Tsantils, successfully negotiated the real estate tax incentives with the School Districts 159 & 227 in Matteson for Siegfried Development who will build the fulfillment centers for Amazon . The Amazon development will bring 2,000 jobs to the South-land. The 855,00 square foot warehouses will be the first of their kind in Cook County using the newest generation of Amazon robots to help sort and ship goods ordered on line.
Attorney Brian Liston told us. “Future employees will work alongside Amazon’s most innovative robotic technology to safely and efficiently pick, pack and ship smaller customer orders such as books, electronics, toys and household goods. All 2,000 new jobs at the fulfillment center will have a starting wage of $15.00 per hour. All employees also will receive medical and dental insurance, and 401(k) retirement benefits.
Governor JB Pritzker said Amazon already has 17 facilities employing 18,000 employees. He said these warehouses came at a critical time for the region, with so many people out of work with the COVID 19 pandemic. Chicago.cbslocal.com
