Amazon Plans Distribution Hub In Monee, Illinois

08/30/2016 plans to open a 850,000 square foot new fulfillment center in Monee, Illinois.

According to company officials, hundreds and hundreds of Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and consumer goods.

“We place our fulfillment centers close to customers to provide the fastest possible delivery times, and the growth in Illinois is directly tied to our increasing customer demand,” said Akash Chauhan, Vice President of Amazon’s North America Operations. “Illinois is a great state to do business, and we are happy to be expanding there to serve customers.”

“We feel very fortunate that Amazon has decided to build another fulfillment center in Will County, bringing the total facilities here to four,” said Will County Executive Lawrence Walsh. “It’s very exciting to think that Amazon could soon be employing thousands and thousands of full-time employees in the area. We look forward to the Monee site opening.”
