The Village of Romeoville and Amazon.com announced plans for a new fulfillment center in Romeoville, Illinois. Amazon employees at the more than 750,000 square-foot fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship large items to customers such as big-screen televisions, sports equipment or kayaks, for example.

"We are excited to add this new fulfillment center in Romeoville," said Akash Chauhan, vice president of Amazon's North America Operations, "Expanding our footprint in Illinois brings hundreds and hundreds of full-time jobs with competitive pay and great benefits starting on day one to the state."

"We are pleased to welcome Amazon to Romeoville. We have very few vacancies, so we were fortunate that they found an existing building that met their needs," said Mayor John Noak. "Amazon continues to have a major impact on our regional economy. We look forward to this partnership, as e-commerce is an important sector in our future growth."

Currently Amazon is modernizing the building and anticipates to be fully operational by October 1st. When fully operational, Amazon will employ over 600 employees. Amazon is now hiring for associate roles at the Romeoville fulfillment center. Additional details can be found at www.amazon.com/mdwjobs.
