Amazon announced it will be creating 1,500 full-time jobs at its Salt Lake City, Utah fulfillment center on Wednesday.

“We are excited to continue growing our team with the first fulfillment center in Utah,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s Vice President of North American operations.

The hourly associates will receive a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package, according to a press release from the company.

“We consider this a perfect pairing, as Amazon and Salt Lake City are both known for our customer service and ease of doing business. We are very excited for the 1,500 new full-time jobs Amazon will create in our community, and look forward to a long future of working together,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski.

The company’s expansion in the beehive state comes after a patent revealed that Amazon wants to create beehive drone delivery centers.
