SEATTLE, Washington—Amazon plans to open a 1.2 million-square-foot fulfillment centre in North East, Maryland.

Amazon currently employs more than 3,000 associates at its fulfillment and sortation centres in Baltimore and plans to create 700 new positions at its third Maryland facility.

“Creating jobs and growing Maryland’s economy is a top priority of our administration,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Amazon’s continued investment in Maryland, which includes thousands of jobs for our citizens, is a great example of companies that choose to locate and expand their business right here in Maryland – a testament to our state’s growing economy.”

The North East fulfillment centre will support customer fulfillment. The company employs thousands of full-time employees at its Baltimore fulfillment and sortation centers and continues to hire to meet growing customer demand.
