E-commerce firm Amazon will open a 10-acre campus here, its biggest outside the United States, on Wednesday.
Located in the IT hub of Gachibowli, the centre can seat 9,000-10,000 employees. It will manage backend operations for the company’s global business and technology teams.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has so far pledged $5.5 billion for its India operations. Construction on the site started about three years ago.
The new campus is Amazon’s first owned building outside of the United States, spans 1.8 million square feet of office space.
Amazon started its retail operations in India in 2013 and has since added several services to boost sales, including an expansion into producing Bollywood originals to boost its Prime Video loyalty program in the movie-loving country. Prime membership in India has doubled over the past 18 months, according to Mr Agarwal, and he still sees “tremendous growth” going forward.
