Amazon is opening up three new fulfillment centres in New Jersey at Cranbury Township, Edison and Logan Township which will create more than 2,500 full-time jobs. The employees in Cranbury and Logan centres will handle larger items such as music equipment, sports gear, and patio furniture while those at Edison will handle books, toys and kitchenware.
 
Since Amazon launched operations in New Jersey in 2012, the company has grown its fulfillment workforce in the state to 13,000-plus full-time employees across seven existing facilities in Avenel, Carteret, Florence, Logan Township and Robbinsville.
 
"Our ability to expand in New Jersey is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce. We are excited to continue growing by creating an additional 2,500 full-time roles at new fulfillment centers across the state," said Akash Chauhan, Amazon's vice president of North American Operations. 
 
Amazon employees at the more than 900,000-square-foot fulfillment centre in Cranbury Township and the one-million-square-foot fulfillment centre in Logan Township will pick, pack and ship larger customer items such as music equipment, sports gear, and patio furniture. The 900,000-square-foot fulfillment centre in Edison will handle smaller customer items such as books, toys and kitchenware.
 
"We applaud Amazon for investing in several expansions throughout New Jersey and for creating greater opportunities for our high-quality workforce. Over the last seven-plus years, my administration has lowered a variety of taxes, improved New Jersey's business climate, increased the number of well-paying jobs and grown the overall economy. Amazon's action should encourage even more employers to benefit from all New Jersey has to offer," governor Chris Christie said. (SV)
