Amazon on Wednesday opened its largest-ever campus in Hyderabad that can accommodate 15,000 employees. The company's largest buildings in Seattle can house about 5,000 employees.
Completed in three years, the Hyderabad campus has 1.8 million square feet of office space with interfaith prayer rooms, mothers' room, quiet rooms, showers, helipad, and an all-day open cafeteria. This new campus is Amazon’s first owned building outside of the United States.
Amazon started its retail operations in India in 2013 and has since added several services to boost sales. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has so far pledged $5.5 billion for its India operations.
On the other side, the local media has reported that Amazon is eager to add food delivery to its Indian repertoire and is negotiating with multiple food companies to kick start the line of business.
