11/18/2015, Inc. plans to open a more than 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center in the Village of Obetz and 800,000 square foot distribution center in Etna Township, Ohio. Together these Amazon facilities will bring more than 2,000 jobs to the region.

“We are very pleased to continue investing in Ohio by building our first fulfilment centers in the state. This investment will create thousands of jobs that will have comprehensive benefits on day one,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Operations. “Our expansion in the Buckeye State will also help us increase our already fast shipping times to our customers.”

“These new Amazon projects will add more than 2,000 new jobs in Obetz and Etna and cutting-edge fulfillment centers in one of the nation’s premier logistics hubs,” said John Minor, President/Chief Investment Officer of JobsOhio.

“We are excited to welcome this investment to Etna, Obetz, the Rickenbacker area, and Ohio,” said Kenny McDonald, CEO of Columbus 2020. “We look forward to working with Amazon and integrating them fully within the Columbus Region's diverse logistics cluster, so that they can continue to successfully service their customers all over the U.S.”

"Etna welcomes Amazon with open arms," said Etna Township Board of Trustees President John Carlisle. "This project further legitimizes Etna's standing on the national stage in economic and community development.”

“The Village of Obetz is proud to add Amazon to its stable of outstanding, national, e-commerce businesses. Obetz, and the Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park region, continue to be the go to spot for global companies looking for the perfect logistics location. We are excited about our partnership with Amazon and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” said Mayor D. Greg Scott.
