Amazon is opening its fourth Ohio fulfillment centre in Monroe, which will create more than 1,000 full-time positions. The company is also opening a fulfillment centre in North Randall, and it currently operates fulfillment centres in Etna and Obetz. Employees at the facility will pick, pack and ship larger items such as sports equipment and gardening tools.

Additionally, there are more than 65,000 authors, sellers, and developers in Ohio growing their businesses and reaching new customers via Amazon products and services.

“We are excited to continue growing in Ohio, adding 1,000 new jobs to the more than 6,000 Amazonians already working in the state,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “The support of local leaders and incredible workforce has been instrumental in our decision to locate the new fulfillment centre in the state, and we are grateful for the support we’ve received to bring new jobs and investment to Ohio.”

“We welcome Amazon’s commitment to bring 1,000 new jobs to Monroe and its growth in Southwest Ohio,” said JobsOhio president and chief investment officer John Minor. “Amazon is a terrific partner of Ohio, and we look forward to working with the company as it expands jobs and opportunities throughout the state.”

Associates at the one-million-square-foot facility will pick, pack and ship larger customer items such as sports equipment, gardening tools, and pet food.

“Amazon's commitment to providing quality employment opportunities for residents of the Monroe area is impressive,” said Monroe City manager William Brock. “One of Southwest Ohio's greatest strengths is its collaborative and regional nature, and we are proud that this project will positively affect numerous communities.”

“Amazon’s decision to locate in Monroe deepens the company’s investment in our region,” said Johnna Reeder, president and CEO, REDI Cincinnati. “Greater Cincinnati’s location at the heart of the US makes it easier to access customers across the country. We’re proud to welcome Amazon to its new home in Monroe.”

“Warren County is excited to have Amazon build on its already strong partnership with Ohio as it locates a new facility in the City of Monroe,” said Martin Russell, executive director of the Warren County Port Authority. “Amazon’s commitment to Warren County and all of Southwest Ohio will afford those seeking employment with great opportunity. With Warren County’s prime location at the centre of the US market, we look forward to partnering with Amazon as they continue to grow their business here and globally.”

The Monroe project is being developed by IDI Gazeley. (SV)
