Amazon plans to open its fifth Ohio fulfillment centre in Euclid, which will create more than 1,000 full-time jobs. The company recently announced new fulfillment centres in Monroe and North Randall, and operates fulfillment centres in Etna and Obetz. Employees at the facility will pick, pack and ship items such as electronics, books, housewares and toys.

“Our growth in Ohio is the result of an outstanding workforce and incredible customers,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “We are proud to be adding 1,000 new jobs to the more than 6,000 Amazonians already working in the state.”

“Amazon continues to demonstrate confidence in Ohio’s communities and people by growing throughout the state,” said JobsOhio president and chief investment officer John Minor. “Amazon’s investment in Euclid will bring another new, high-tech facility and 1,000 full-time jobs to a vacant property.”

Associates at the 650,000-square-foot facility will pick, pack and ship customer items such as electronics, books, housewares and toys.

“We are thrilled to welcome Amazon and Seefried Industrial Properties to the City of Euclid,” said City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail. “The Euclid Square Mall site has been a prime target of our redevelopment efforts. While some saw a vacant mall, we saw an opportunity for growth and development. This project is a fantastic addition to the investment we are seeing in our industrial corridor and will provide valuable employment opportunities for our residents. I truly appreciate the support and professionalism of Team NEO, Greater Cleveland Partnership, Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Department of Transportation, Euclid City Council and my administration for helping make this transformative project a reality.”

“Over the last two years, we’ve been laser focused on creating jobs,” said Armond Budish, Cuyahoga County executive. “It’s very exciting to support a second Amazon distribution centre, creating another 1,000 jobs for residents in the county, in addition to the 2,000 jobs at the Randall Park Mall site. These newly announced Amazon projects provide two great advantages: 3,000 new jobs and valuable repurposing of two vacant malls.” (SV)
