Amazon.com plans to open a new fulfillment center in Orlando, FL. When the site opens in 2018, Amazon said the facility will create 1,500 new full-time jobs.
Employees at the more than 850,000 square-foot fulfillment center located at Lake Nona will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and consumer goods.
“We are excited to join the Orlando community, creating more than 1,500 full-time jobs at our new fulfillment center,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vp/North America operations. “We very much appreciate the state and local elected leaders who have supported Amazon’s arrival in Orlando and we look forward to bringing more jobs and investment to the state in the coming months.”
