Amazon is opening two fulfilment centres in Aurora, Illinois, which will create more than 1,000 full time jobs. The world’s biggest online retailer already manages fulfilment centres in Edwardsville, Joliet and Romeoville, all in Illinois with another centre under construction in Monee. Once up and running, all centres will together employ 7,000 people.

At the nearly one million square foot facility in Aurora, employees will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and consumer goods. The other facility, spanning 400,000 square feet, will specialise in handling larger items like big screen televisions.

During the past two years, Amazon has announced eight fulfilment centres in Illinois. Amazon also has a longstanding commitment of hiring military veterans and spouses for careers across the company, including at its fulfilment centres. (AR)
