Amazon to Open Second Fulfillment Center in Oklahoma City
admin / December 2020
New Facility Slated to Open in 2021 to Create 500 New Jobs
Online retailer Amazon is opening a second fulfillment center in Oklahoma City, bolstering its industrial footprint in the Sooner State’s capital city.
The e-commerce giant’s new 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center will join its existing 2.56 million-square-foot fulfillment center near Will Rogers World Airport, which was built in 2019. Amazon’s new facility is set to create 500 jobs, the company said in an announcement on Thursday.
Amazon did not disclose the location of its newest fulfillment center in its Thursday announcement. But the Oklahoman in July reported a new 1 million-square-foot building for Amazon was being planned near the e-retailer’s existing fulfillment center off South Portland Avenue.
Amazon’s new facility grows its presence in Oklahoma City. In addition to its existing fulfillment center, Amazon has a 300,000-square-foot sorting facility at 1414 S. Council Road, a 312,120-square-foot facility at 6801 S. Air Depot Blvd. near Tinker Air Force Base and a delivery station at 6101 SW 44th St., which was acquired by New Jersey-based Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corp. for $15.2 million. The company also has a 2.56-million-square-foot fulfillment center in Tulsa.
Amazon’s second Oklahoma City fulfillment center is set to open in 2021.
