Amazon Plans Fulfillment Centers In Florence and Carteret, New Jersey
“We place our fulfillment centers close to customers to provide the fastest possible delivery times, and this expansion in New Jersey is directly tied to our increasing customer demand,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Fulfillment Operations. “We currently have more than 5,500 full-time jobs in the state and we are excited about the opportunity to add 2,000 new full-time positions.”
Amazon currently operates a fulfillment center in Carteret with more than 500 full-time associates. This new fulfillment center, the second in Carteret, will be more than 800,000 square-feet and employ more than 1,500 full-time associates. The more than 600,000 square-foot fulfillment center in Florence will employ more than 500 full-time associates when opened.
“More fulfillment centers mean more jobs for New Jersey, and, while we celebrate the sheer number of jobs being created, we also want to recognize the impact that these investments will have on their new communities. The employees who will work with Amazon will form the fabric of their neighborhoods,” said Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno. “As Amazon continues to show its commitment to the towns of Florence and Carteret, we will continue to demonstrate our intent to help these communities grow and thrive as well.”
