Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Seattle, Washington, on Wednesday announced plans to open a new fulfillment center in El Paso, Texas. The 625,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to open in 2021, will create more than 700 new full-time jobs.

“We’re excited to be growing our operations in West Texas and look forward to building out our network in El Paso,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We’re grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders and we look forward to creating over 700 full-time jobs for the El Paso community, with industry leading pay and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”

This is the second such announcement in recent weeks for Amazon, which last week said it was building an 820,000 square-foot site in Pflugerville, Texas. The company is expecting to create 1,000 new, full-time jobs at that location.
