Amazon plans fourth Texas fulfillment centre in Dallas

The world’s biggest online retailer Amazon.com said it plans to open a fourth Texas fulfillment centre in Dallas.

“Since launching its first fulfillment centre in Texas, Amazon has created over 3,500 full-time jobs and invested more than $400 million in the state,” the online retailer said in a press release.

Amazon’s other Texas fulfillment centres are located in Coppell, Haslet, and Schertz.

“We are proud to continue creating hundreds of new full-time jobs in Texas that offer wages 30 percent higher than traditional retail stores,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president for North America.

“Our growth in Texas has been a team effort between the amazing workforce in the state and the incredible support we have received from local communities,” Roth added.

“It is great news that Amazon has decided to open another facility in the DFW region that will create hundreds of good full-time jobs,” said Dallas county commissioner John Wiley Price.

“The announcement of this new facility demonstrates to me that Amazon plans to be a long-term partner, for the community and we are proud that they continue to invest in our economy,” he too added.

Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings said, "We are thrilled that Amazon chose Dallas as the location for its new fulfillment centre.”

“The company has been innovative in not only the level of technology it uses, but also in its ability to create quality jobs for a diverse community throughout North Texas,” Rawlings noted.

Amazon employees at the 500,000 square-foot Dallas fulfillment centre will process smaller items, such as books, electronics and consumer goods.

Amazon offers hourly employees programs like Career Choice, where it pre-pay’s up to 95 per cent of fees for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon.

Since the program’s launch, employees are pursuing degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few.

The project is being developed in a joint venture between Clarion Partners and Trammell Crow Company. (AR)
