Fighting with states over sales tax hasn’t slowed Amazon’s expansion drive. Amazon announced today that it plans to expand one of its fulfillment centers in Phoenix, Arizona while at the same time launching a new fulfillment center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Dave Clark, VP of Amazon North America Operations, had this to say: “Over the past four years, we’ve invested tens of millions of dollars and created hundreds of jobs at our three Phoenix facilities. We look forward to increasing our presence in Arizona with this expansion project, bringing additional dollars and jobs to the state.”
The Indianapolis facility will be Amazon’s third fulfillment center in Indiana. Amazon currently operates two centers in Whitestown and Plainfield, Indiana, bringing its total footprint in the state to approximately 2.5 million square feet. The company employs thousands of people in these facilities.
