Amazon reveals £1.5bn investment in Doncaster and South Yorkshire

Amazon has invested a whopping £1.5 billion in Doncaster and South Yorkshire in the last 12 years, including its Doncaster warehouses and fulfilment centre.

The 2022 UK Economic Impact Hub and latest analysis shows that the company has invested more than £1.5 billion in South Yorkshire since 2010.

The report provides regional data on jobs created by Amazon locally, the number of regional independent small businesses supported, the level of economic activity driven by Amazon’s investments and the export sales recorded last year by small businesses in South Yorkshire selling on Amazon.

To date, Amazon has created more than 4,000 full and part-time jobs in Yorkshire and the Humber with operational facilities in Doncaster, Sheffield, Leeds, North Ferriby and Hull.

In South Yorkshire there are more than 1,000 small and medium-sized businesses selling on Amazon as independent selling partners with small businesses from the region recording over £25 million of export sales in 2021.

Business Doncaster, the economic delivery team for Doncaster Council attracted Amazon to invest in Doncaster way back in 2010. With business support from the Business Doncaster team, Amazon has received extensive and ongoing support including further property searches and recruitment through our dedicated employment academies.

Doncaster’s logistics network is certainly a distinct advantage with excellent road connections and motorways enabling them to reach out from Doncaster deliver across the UK with ease and efficiency.
