Amazon Announces New Facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, US

Amazon.com  today announced plans to open a new fulfillment center in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The facility will create hundreds of new full time jobs and involve a $50 million investment in the state.

“South Carolina has been a great home for us and we’re excited to create hundreds of additional jobs in the state,” said Dave Clark, vice president, Amazon Global Customer Fulfillment. “We had a great first holiday season in Lexington County and we look forward to serving our customers from both Lexington and Spartanburg Counties by the fall.”

Amazon opened its first South Carolina fulfillment center last year in Lexington County’s Saxe Gotha Industrial Park. The new facility in Spartanburg County will be approximately one million square feet and will be located on a site near John Dodd Road.

“Our state has a vibrant and growing distribution and logistics sector, and having a company like Amazon continue to establish new operations here builds on that reputation,” said Bobby Hitt, Secretary of Commerce.

Amazon plans to begin hiring for the new fulfillment center later this year and the facility is expected to be operational this fall. Amazon Fulfillment Centers in South Carolina are operated by Amazon.com. LLC.

Amazon.com is a great online retail success story in US and in UK. It is spreading its wings in all corners of the US and other parts of the world. It is also contemplating to jump into Indian online retail bandwagon. It will give tough challenge to its competitors in India once it starts operations in India.
