7 April 2017 – Press Release
Amazon’s commitment to Cataluña continues to grow. The e-commerce giant is going to open its new headquarters in Martorelles, specifically, in the Martorelles Logistic Park. Sources at the town hall assure that this new facility in Martorelles will result in the creation of 650 new jobs over the next three years. “Amazon plans to launch operations in the autumn with 200 people”, explained the mayor of Martorelles, Marc Candela.
Amazon will take over the four warehouses in the logistics park, which cover a surface area of 30,000 m2, equivalent to four football pitches. This is Amazon’s fourth investment in Cataluña after it confirmed the creation of a logistics macro-centre in El Prat in June; in September, it will inaugurate a warehouse in the centre of Barcelona from where it will ship products for delivery in less than one hour; and in October, it will build another logistics centre in Castellbisbal.
Warehouses A and B at the Martorelles Logistic Park, the logistics platform developed by the investor group Segro on the grounds of the former Domar-New Pol, on the Martorelles industrial estate, are about to begin operating. Currently, half of the facilities are ready and construction is beginning on the second phase of the logistics complex, warehouses C and D.
