(MT. JULIET) More than 1,000 new full-time jobs are coming to the second Amazon fulfillment center in Tennessee. An 855,000 square foot complex is being constructed with an anticipated launch date of late 2021.
On Friday (7/24/2020)Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe announced that Amazon will establish a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Mt. Juliet.
The Mt. Juliet facility will be Amazon’s second fulfillment center in Tennessee to use innovative robotics technology and the company’s seventh fulfillment center in the Volunteer State. In January, Amazon announced it would establish a similar 1,000-job fulfillment center in Memphis. Employees at Amazon’s new Mt. Juliet fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller items, such as books, electronics and consumer goods.
Amazon currently operates fulfillment and sortation centers in Charleston, Chattanooga, Lebanon, Memphis, Murfreesboro and Nashville, a Prime Now Hub in Nashville and various other facilities supporting last mile delivery operations across the state.
The company is in the midst of building a corporate office in downtown Nashville, which will house the management functions for Amazon’s Retail Operations division.
Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $6.5 billion into its local fulfillment center infrastructure and through compensation to thousands of employees in the state. Amazon's investments in Tennessee contributed an additional $4.5 billion into the state’s economy, and using methodology developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 6,000 indirect jobs on top of the company's 6,500 direct hires.
Amazon’s fulfillment network supports millions of small, medium, and large-sized businesses worldwide through its Fulfillment By Amazon offering. There are more than 30,000 authors, sellers and developers in Tennessee, growing their businesses and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services every day.
