“Today’s announcement is a first step in the development of the retail portion of our project. We expect the thousands of people who will work at Tradepoint Atlantic and the tens of thousands that travel I-695 every day will welcome this highly accessible retail development to the area.”
Amazon has officially announced plans to construct an 855,000 square-foot fulfillment center at Tradepoint Atlantic in Baltimore County and bring 1,500 new jobs to the region. The company currently employs more than 5,000 full-time associates at three existing facilities in Baltimore City and Cecil County. Associates at the new facility will pick, pack, and ship customer items such as electronics, books, housewares, and toys.
I want to personally thank each and every one you for the continued hard work and dedication you show each and every day. The challenges are daunting, yet the work we are doing here is meaningful and will have a significant impact for generations to come, something to be very proud of. Because of you, we are making great strides in 2017, and are on track to have a very busy fall and expect to kick off 2018 with even more momentum. As with any new organization, there comes a time where we must look internally to see how we can best work together to accomplish the goals and tasks before us. After consultation with TPA’s Board of Directors, I would like to announce several organizational changes that will help position TPA for success moving forward. Please find attached a memo and company organizational chart detailing these new changes. I believe this new structure provides clarity, organizational strength and added functional areas that have been missing. It is my hope that we will continue to work together to solve problems, look for new opportunities and innovations, and bring together our collective talent to create a new future for ourselves, our families and for Sparrows Point. Sincerest Regards, Mike Mullen, Chairman & CEO
