MISSOURI CITY, TX—Amazon.com Inc.'s fulfillment center is slated to launch here in 2021. It will create more than 500 full-time jobs with industry-leading pay and comprehensive benefits.

"Amazon is grateful for the strong support we've received from local and state leaders as we grow our footprint throughout Texas," Daniel Martin, operations PR manager with Amazon, tells GlobeSt.com. "There are a lot of contributing factors that go into our thought process on where to place a new fulfillment center. We looked at the local workforce and found talent in abundance in Missouri City. We're also responding to customer demand and want to make sure our fulfillment centers are close to customers so we can offer great Prime service and fast shipping speeds."

In this 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center, Amazon associates will work to pick, pack and ship bulky or larger-sized items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment or rugs.
