Amazon will create more than 1,500 jobs when it opens a second fulfillment center in Michigan, the company announced today.
The company has plans to open the 855,000 square foot warehouse in Romulus.
Amazon is set to open a Livonia fulfillment center in October. More than 1,000 positions are currently open at that location.
"Today’s announcement is terrific news for Michigan,” said Gov. Rick Snyder in a press release about the upcoming facility. “I appreciate that Amazon is continuing to invest in Michiganders by creating more jobs and offering training in the skills people need to take advantage of new opportunities.”
