Amazon inaugurates 12,000-m2 HQ in central Madrid

Tuesday 17 October 2017 | 11:15 CET | News
Amazon has inaugurated its new Spanish head office in a six-floor complex in the central Mendez Alvaro district of Madrid. The 12,000 square meter space is almost double the size of its previous HQ in Pozuelo de Alarcon and has sufficient space to accommodate 1,000 workers, said the company in a statement. Amazon Spain currently has 1,600 full-time workers, 600 more than in 2016, and is set to open a 100,000 square meter distribution centre near Toledo as well as an R&D centre in Barcelona next year.
