The city of Daleville will soon be home to one of Amazon’s newest last mile facilities, supporting their distribution network. The facility will be located in the former Fred’s Building on US-84, near All-In Credit Union.

Daleville Mayor Jayme Stayton and Wiregrass Economic Development Executive Director Jonathan Tullos worked with Amazon over the past six months to bring the facility to Daleville.

“The city of Daleville is excited to welcome Amazon! Amazon has an outstanding reputation across the globe and will create quality jobs in our community; I am proud to have them as corporate citizens,” Stayton said.

Amazon has asked that any inquiries regarding operations be directed to Amazon-pr@amazon.com

Stayton believes that this could be just the beginning of good things to come from this project. “Companies like Amazon tend to attract other companies. I believe they chose Daleville because of our proximity to Fort Rucker, Dothan and Enterprise. Additionally, this is a great testimonial to the quality labor pool we have in our area.”

Tullos echoed those sentiments. “I believe Mayor Stayton and the city of Daleville have done a tremendous job in recruiting this project. Daleville was about as business-friendly as a company could ask them to be when it came to streamlining red-tape to get this facility open. Just think, during the COVID pandemic, Mayor Stayton and his team were able to navigate this process and convince Amazon to call their community home.”

Amazon is already taking applications to fill jobs at this facility and has nearly finished renovations of the property.
