Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), Seattle, Washington, on Thursday announced plans to build an Amazon fulfillment center in Madison County, Mississippi. This fulfillment center will be the first facility located in the state to feature Amazon’s robotics technology. The company launched its first facility in Mississippi in Byhalia in 2019, and a new fulfilment center this August in Olive Branch.
“Mississippi is a great state for business and gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the region,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We are excited for our future in the magnolia state, and for what this means for our customers as we continue to grow. We’d also like to thank local and state leaders for their strong support in making this project possible.”
