Amazon’s footprint in southeastern Wisconsin just keeps growing. Once operational, the new 2.5 million-square-foot, four-story fulfillment center in Oak Creek will be its latest, and biggest, facility in the region.
It was built at Ryan Business Park, southeast of 13th Street and Ryan Road. As of early August, it wasn’t clear when exactly it would be in operation. Andrew Vickers, Oak Creek city administrator, said Amazon didn’t have final occupancy and had not yet asked for a final inspection. A company spokesperson didn’t provide a specific opening date.
“We are very much looking forward to the new Amazon fulfillment center MKE2 in Oak Creek – our second Amazon Robotics fulfillment center in Wisconsin,” Amazon spokesperson Kirsten Wenker said. “The new facility will launch later this year.”
The online retail giant also is or will soon be operating in facilities in Kenosha, Sturtevant, Sussex, Wauwatosa and Yorkville.
