Amazon does it again

SEATTLE, Washington—Amazon.com, Inc plans to open a Texas fulfillment centre in San Marcos. In Texas, Amazon currently employs more than 3,500 full-time associates, in four DCs. Amazon’s other Lone Star State fulfillment centres are located in Schertz, Coppell, and Haslet, with a fourth facility under construction in Dallas.

Amazon employees at the 855,000 square-foot San Marcos fulfillment center will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “In establishing a new distribution centre in San Marcos, Amazon is fulfilling the needs not only of its customers, but the entire community by creating more than 1,000 full-time, permanent jobs, offering generous tuition assistance, and recruiting U.S. Military veterans. This project is yet another testament to the fact that Texas remains the best state in the nation to do business.”
