BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. — Amazon plans to open a new delivery center in a vacant former Haldex Brake Products Corp. building.

The e-commerce titan anticipates full operations will begin late this year at the Blue Springs facility, located at 2400 NE Coronado Drive.

Haldex Brake Products Corp., a subsidiary of Sweden-based Haldex AB, in October 2019 announced it would shutter the 70,593-square-foot building, affecting 154 jobs.

“This facility will not only bring jobs to Blue Springs but it also fills a vacant industrial building in our community,” said Blue Springs Mayor Carson Ross in a Friday release. “We are proud to see companies like Amazon investing in our community and creating more opportunities for our residents.”

The Blue Springs delivery center becomes Amazon’s ninth known facility in the Kansas City metro area.
