Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) this week said it will open three new operations facilities in Alabama, including a delivery station in Birmingham, a fulfillment center in Huntsville and a receive center in Montgomery.

“We are proud to continue our investment in Alabama with thousands of good jobs and new, state-of-the-art operations facilities,” said Brian Huseman, vice president of public policy at Amazon. “Our success would not be possible without our great employees and we are grateful for the enthusiasm and strong state and local support we have received since first launching operations in 2020. We look forward to continued investment as we innovate and grow to better serve our customers across the state.”

The company said it plans to add more than 500 full-time jobs to its Alabama operations by the end of the year.

Amazon previously opened a non-sortable fulfillment center, also in Huntsville.

Last month, Amazon opened a robotics facility in Westborough, Massachusetts.

Amazon Business ranks No. 2 on MDM’s Top Distributors list for MRO distributors and No. 3 on MDM’s list of Top 40 industrial and construction distributors.
