The building utilizes Amazon robotic technology, vision systems and almost 20 years worth of software and mechanical innovations to fulfill customer orders. Amazon has more than 80 fulfillment centers, and continues to grow nationwide and across the world.
The Etna fulfillment facility is broken up into two work sections — the inbound and outbound crews. The inbound employees receive products from inventory suppliers and check each item to make sure they’re not damaged.
The outbound process includes employees grabbing packages off the conveyed, and then they make sure they’re packed in the correct-sized boxes. Amazon’s conveyor belts and robotic technology scan the packages and stamp the addresses on the boxes before they’re sorted for distribution.

Adam Sedo, spokesman for Amazon, said the Etna facility fulfills the needs of customers across the nation.
“We create. We build. We take ownership for what we do – whether we’re developing a new technology in-house or launching a new Fulfillment Center. Together, we’re constantly creating the ideas, services and products that make life easier for Amazon’s millions of customers. Regardless of role, each Amazonian is completely focused on working hard, having fun and making history,” according to a company statement.
