BY Deena M. Amato-McCoy

Amazon is opening a new fulfillment center in the Buckeye state.

The online giant is preparing to open a new 855,000 sq. ft. facility in Ohio, its sixth in the state. Amazon currently operates distribution centers in the cities of Etna and Obetz. It is also preparing to launch operations in North Randall and Monroe by the end of 2018, and its Euclid warehouse is set to open in 2019.

Amazon’s newest facility will create 1,500 jobs, and associates will be tasked with picking, packing and shipping electronics, books, housewares and toys.

The company has created more than 6,000 full-time jobs in Ohio, and invested over $2 billion in the state since 2011, both in customer fulfillment infrastructure and compensation to its employees in the state, according to the company.
