“We’re proud that we’ve hired people from all walks of life in our operations center in Blacksburg and that we’ve obtained certifications. In fact, last year alone, we had over 65 ppl with certifications in Amazon. That’s ongoing for us today and we’re making sure we’re equipping for the capacity that is coming.”
