SCC prepared to support local Amazon fulfillment center with Supply Chain Logistics and Manufacturing Program

To support growing sales, Amazon will open its first Missouri fulfillment center just a few miles north of St. Charles Community College in St. Peters. The more than 800,000 square foot facility will reportedly create more than 1,500 local jobs.

SCC is prepared to support the local workforce in these new openings with its Supply Chain Logistics and Manufacturing Technologies A.A.S degree. The degree launched in spring 2017 and is designed to equip students with the tools they need for the modern manufacturing environment. Through this program, students become prepared for employment with companies, like Amazon, that have implemented team-oriented design, supply chain logistics, production, quality and maintenance systems within the manufacturing environment. 

"Amazon's choice to locate in Missouri speaks to our strength as North America's logistics center," said Rob Dixon, director of Missouri's Department of Economic Development. "Our central location, international airports and extensive highway, rail and river networks position Missouri as an ideal location for this new facility."

"This is a major investment that reflects the growing shift to e-commerce and will add more than 1,500 new, full-time jobs in St. Charles County," County Executive Steve Ehlmann said. "Amazon's decision is just one more indication that St. Charles County is being recognized as an exceptional place to live, work and do business."
