Global online retailer Amazon.com Inc announced it will open a new fulfillment center here, creating more than 1,100 jobs in the next three years.

Amazon will locate its latest fulfillment center, which will be operated by Amazon.com DEDC LLC, in Hazleton, PA, 30 miles southwest of Wilkes-Barre. The Hazleton facility will be more than 600,000 square feet and will allow Amazon to serve its customers in the Northeast more efficiently. The company also plans to hire up to 800 temporary associates during peak seasons to meet demands for its products.

"Not only will this project result in well over a thousand new jobs for hard-working Pennsylvanians, but those jobs will provide ancillary benefits for the entire region," said Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell.

"The Hazleton facility will play an important role in allowing us to serve our customers in the Northeast more quickly and efficiently and we're excited to be opening our fifth facility in Pennsylvania," said Mike McKenna, vice president of North American fulfillment for Amazon.
