Amazon.com made it official on Thursday, announcing it plans to open a 1-million-square-foot fulfillment center in Windsor, Connecticut.
The center will create more than 300 full time jobs, according to the company.
"Amazon is excited to bring hundreds of great full-time jobs to Windsor that offer competitive wages and programs like Career Choice where we will pre-pay tuition for employees to pursue their education in high-demand fields," Mike Roth, Amazon's vice president of North America operations, said in a release. "We are grateful to the state and local elected officials who have supported Amazon in bringing jobs and investment to the Constitution State."
Workers at the facility will pack and ship large items to Amazon customers, the company said.
“The importance of having a company like Amazon in our town and adding new jobs cannot be overstated. We are proud to welcome Amazon to Windsor,” Windsor Mayor Don Trinks said in the release.
There is no official date for the center's opening.
