Online retailer Amazon said it has planned to open a seventh 855,000 square foot fulfillment centre in Houston, Texas, which will also offer 1,000 full-time positions.

Amazon operates fulfillment centres elsewhere in Texas in Coppell, Haslet, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Schertz, with a facility in San Marcos under construction.

“With Houston's legacy as a pioneer in innovation, we are proud to become a member of the community,” Akash Chauhan, Amazon's vice president of North American operations said.

“We are excited to create more than 1,000 full-time jobs and to become a member of the business community,” Chauhan added.

"We are pleased but not surprised that a great company like Amazon continues to expand in Texas, bringing more than a thousand new jobs," said Texas governor Dan Patrick.

“Texas is committed to maintaining a strong business climate that allows companies to prosper, innovate and expand and I predict, this will not be the last Amazon facility we will see here,” he too added. (AR)
