Amazon.com, Inc. Plans Additional Fulfillment Center In Coppell, Texas
Amazon employees at the one million-square-foot Coppell fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys. Amazon’s first Coppell fulfillment center began fulfilling customer orders in 2013 and its second facility launched during the 2016 holiday shopping season.
Elsewhere in the Lone Star State, Amazon currently operates fulfillment centers in Coppell (two facilities), Haslet, Dallas, Fort Worth, Schertz and San Marcos with a facility currently under construction in Houston. Amazon also has sortation centers in Irving, San Antonio and Houston.
“This building will be a new addition to the Amazon Robotics fulfillment network, which already has a robust presence in the metroplex,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s Vice President of North American Operations. “Because of our ability to have more inventory on-hand and increased speed of fulfillment, we are able to better meet customer demand and create thousands of associate roles, which receive competitive wages and benefits. We are proud of our ability to create jobs, spur innovation and provide excellent Prime service to members.”
“Amazon’s continuing growth and job creation in Dallas County is a testament to the dedicated workforce and healthy business environment here in the region,” said Dallas County Commissioner Mike Cantrell.
“When I toured the first Coppell fulfillment center two years ago,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, “I was impressed by just how quickly the company was growing and the number of jobs it could create. Here we are in 2017, and Amazon employs thousands of full-time employees in Dallas County alone.”
“We are so excited to see the Amazon team grow by the thousands here in Coppell,” said Coppell Mayor Karen Hunt. “To have a company that provides good compensation and furthering education tuition to its employees flourish in our city is a point of pride at Coppell City Hall.”
