Amazon to Add 4th Facility in Ohio

Developed by IDI Gazeley, the upcoming 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center is set to bring 1,000 full-time jobs to Monroe.

Amazon unveiled plans to open its fourth Ohio fulfillment center in Monroe. Most recently, the company announced the construction of a new facility in North Randall, and is currently operating in Etna and Obetz.

Developed by IDI Gazeley, the upcoming development in Monroe will create more than 1,000 full-time jobs. Employees at the 1 million-square-foot facility will pick, pack and ship larger customer items such as sports equipment, gardening tools and pet food.

“We are excited to continue growing in Ohio, adding 1,000 new jobs to the more than 6,000 Amazonians already working in the state,” said Sanjay Shah, vice president of North America customer fulfillment for Amazon, in prepared remarks. “The support of local leaders and incredible workforce has been instrumental in our decision to locate the new fulfillment center in the state, and we are grateful for the support we’ve received to bring new jobs and investment to Ohio.”

Last week, Amazon unveiled plans for its first fulfillment center in Staten Island, N.Y. The facility will bring 2,250 full-time job opportunities for employees to work with advanced robotics.
