Amazon Opened Its Biggest Campus To Date
Amazon just opened its biggest campus to date in Hyderabad, India
Amazon has opened its biggest campus to date, and it’s in the financial district of Hyderabad, India.
Hyderabad is home to various American tech giants, including Google and Microsoft. Amazon’s Hyderabad campus opened on Wednesday, and it’s the first office building outside of the US that Amazon owns. The 9.5-acre campus took three years to build and can fit more than 15,000 employees.
Amazon called the campus “a continuing reaffirmation of how India continues to be a key market as well as talent hub for Amazon” in its press release.
Bloomberg reports that both Amazon and Walmart are making moves in India, which it calls “the last major retail frontier still primarily reliant on small-scale neighborhood and mom-and-pop stores.” Amit Agarwal, Amazon India’s country head, says that ecommerce constitutes just 3% of India’s total consumption.
