Amazon Establishes Paris, Texas, Operations

Amazon plans to establish a 48,000-square-foot warehouse in Paris, Texas.

“This last-mile facility will allow us to better serve customers in Paris and across northeast Texas,” said Jessica Breaux, senior manager of economic development for Amazon. “We’re grateful for our partnership with the city of Paris and the Paris Economic Development Corporation and look forward to sharing more details about this facility and the good jobs we’ll offer in the future.”

Since 2010, Amazon has invested $54 billion in Texas — including infrastructure and pay to employees. The company employs 89,000 people in Texas and operates more than 80 operations facilities across the state.

“The availability of an existing building was crucial in securing this project,” noted Maureen Hammond, executive director of the Paris Economic Development Corporation. “We appreciate the work of our partners locally who worked with Amazon to make this project a reality. We look forward to building a strong and enduring partnership with Amazon.”
