Amazon plans to open two new fulfillment centers in Kansas. The new fulfillment centers, which are anticipated to launch in 2021, will together create over 1,000 new, full-time jobs.
“We’re excited to continue our growth and investment across Kansas so we can better serve our customers throughout the state,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vp/global customer fulfillment. “We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders, and we look forward to ingraining ourselves in the communities in which we serve.”
In both of the new one million square-foot fulfillment centers, located at 9700 Leavenworth Road in Kansas City, Kansas, and at 7130 North Broadway Avenue in Park City, Kansas, Amazon associates will work to pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment or rugs.
In addition to the two new fulfillment centers, Amazon also plans to open a new delivery station in Wichita, Kansas, which is expected to launch later in 2020.
