Gov. Rick Scott and Amazon announced Thursday Amazon’s proposal to create more than 3,000 full-time jobs with benefits and more than $300 million in investment in Florida by the end of 2016.
The Fortune 500 online-only company first will seek economic development incentives to find the best site and make its investment a reality — a material factor in any final location decisions.
“Amazon’s commitment to create more than 3,000 new jobs in Florida is further proof that we’ve turned our economy around,” the governor said. “Amazon will continue to work with Enterprise Florida on its ongoing projects, which will include a return on any taxpayer investment, and we look forward to the company’s announcements as it chooses locations and creates jobs in Florida.
