Wednesday, October 03, 2018
MONROE —Amazon’s new fulfillment center in Monroe is just months away from opening and bringing more than 1,000 full time jobs to the region.
Located near Interstate 75 at 700 Gateway Blvd. in Park North at Monroe, the cavernous 1.3 million-square-foot facility was completed this month, company officials said. It will make its debut in 2019 and house employees who will pick, pack and ship larger items such as car seats, sports equipment, patio furniture, gardening tools, kayaks and pet food.
Amazon, which employs 575,000 nationwide, will ramp up hiring for the Monroe facility over the course of just a few weeks following its opening, according to Rachael Lighty, regional manager, external communications for Amazon Operations.
