Since founding Clayco more than 35 years ago, our culture has always been to do more than just build. We work to tear down obstacles, rebuild old methods and thinking, and provide creative ideas and solutions that advance society. One of the most integral ways we do this is by partnering with businesses like Amazon that align with our values.
Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer and is guided by four principles: customer obsession, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. The company prioritizes its community and economic impact to ensure its operations, products, and services benefit people. It’s great to collaborate with enterprises that advance communities through investment, empowerment, job creation, and more.
Our Clayco team is working on multiple e-commerce centers for Amazon across America. The buildings will range from 500,000 square feet to 1,000,000+ square feet and feature up to 1.2 million square feet of mezzanine space. We have developments from my hometown in St. Louis, Missouri, to cities in Delaware, California, and various places and states in between. Many of Clayco’s projects are concentrated on the coasts to accommodate high populations and bustling demand, including the largest facility we have completed to date – a 3,899,874-square-foot center in Tracy, California.
These projects enable our Clayco team to support Amazon’s national operations and positive impact. In the last ten years, Amazon has created more jobs than any other U.S. company and played a pivotal role in driving national prosperity. Amazon also invests in the success of entrepreneurs and small businesses, funding over $30 billion in logistics, services, programs, and people to foster the growth of its sellers.
Clayco and Amazon aim to be transformative customer-centric businesses and provide safe, productive workplaces. Our companies strive to be a name people can trust, and our excellent teamwork allows us to help businesses and neighborhoods thrive.
Whether it is our shared mission to lead industries toward a zero-carbon economy or the various ways we support underrepresented and underserved communities, our passion for progress is clear. Clayco’s partnership with Amazon will continue to bring innovation to America and beyond.
Let’s keep expanding our positive impact!
