Kolkata, Aug 21 (IBNS): Located in Hyderabad’s financial district, Amazon on Wednesday inaugurated its largest campus building anywhere worldwide, as a continuing reaffirmation of how India continues to be a key market as well as talent hub for Amazon.

This is the only Amazon-owned campus outside the US and will house over 15,000 employees of its over 62,000 employee base in India. On behalf of the Chief Minister of Telangana, Kalvakuntla Chandrashekhar Rao, the new campus building was inaugurated by Mr. Mohammed Mahmood Ali, MLC, Minister of Home, Prisons, Fire Services, Govt. of Telangana, in the presence of Amit Agarwal, SVP and Country Head, Amazon India and John Schoettler, VP, Global Real Estate and Facilities, Amazon.

With 15,000 work points across 1.8 million square feet in office space, built on 3 million square feet of construction area, this is Amazon’s single largest building in the world in terms of total area. The infrastructure has been developed in adherence to Amazon’s exacting standards, designed to facilitate inclusion of employees with special needs and support its diverse workforce.

K Chandrashekar Rao, Chief Minister, Government of Telangana said, “Telangana is happy to host Amazon’s largest building campus in the world. Amazon has played a significant role in creating job opportunities in Hyderabad for more than a decade. This facility was built in a record time of just over 3 years, showing the ease of doing business with the Government of Telangana. It also showcases our investment-friendly policies and commitment to create a hub for high quality talent pool.”

Amit Agarwal, SVP & Country Manager, Amazon India said, “We are excited to inaugurate our largest campus building globally here in India at Hyderabad. Over these last 15 years we have invested significantly in India across 30 office spaces, the AWS APAC Region in Mumbai, 50 Fulfilment Centers in 13 states of India as well as hundreds of delivery stations and sort centres, creating nearly 200,000 jobs in India. This new Amazon campus building is a tangible commitment to that long-term thinking and our plans for India.”

“I would like to thank the Government of Telangana for its investment-friendly policies and continued support that has always encouraged us to continue to invest and grow our operations here,” he added.
