The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation has been recognized for its work in recruiting the Amazon Bulk Fulfilment Center center to the city of Pflugerville by receiving the Honorable Mention Award for Business Facilities 2020 Deal of The Year Awards. 

The PCDC and City of Pflugerville announced in July 2020, that Amazon would be constructing a 3.8M square-foot facility along Pecan Street and SH-130 in Pflugerville. The addition of the new facility would create 1,000 new full-time jobs for residents of the city. 

“To be recognized as one of the top 12 projects in 2020 by Business Facilities, a national publication serving corporate site selectors for over 50-years, in one of the most competitive contests in the country, is huge,” said Amy Madison, PCDC Executive Director. “It is equally humbling to be listed with Austin Chamber, our regional partner, who brought home the Gold Medal as Deal of the Year for recruiting the Tesla Gigafactory plant, located less than 20 miles from Pflugerville. It is truly a great time to be in the Austin region.” 

This year, BF magazine awarded three medals of gold, silver, and bronze and nine honorable mentions.  Three of the twelve honorees were Texas projects.  Besides Austin and Pflugerville, one other Texas city, Irving-Las Colinas, received an honorable mention award for their project with Microsoft, according to the BF website.

The new Amazon facility broke ground in February 2020 and it set to begin operation on or before December 2022. 

Business Facilities is a national publication that has been the leading location source for corporate site selectors and economic development professionals for more than 50 years.
