Texas to gain another Amazon fulfillment center


Everything is bigger in Texas — including Amazon’s breadth of fulfillment centers.

The retail giant is planning its ninth Texas fulfillment center in Coppell, a move that will create 1,000 more full-time positions. The facility, which will be outfitted with state-of-the-art robotics, will be Amazon’s third located in Coppell. Amazon’s first Coppell warehouse began fulfilling customer orders in 2013; the second launched during the 2016 holiday shopping season.

Amazon employees at the anticipated 1 million-sq.-ft. fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electron-ics and toys.

Amazon currently employs more than 10,000 full-time associates at its seven operating fulfillment centers across the state, and sortation centers in Irving, San Antonio and Houston. There is another recently announced facility currently under construction in 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 VP of North American operations.
