New Amazon Distribution Facility Coming to Greenwood

Amazon has signed a lease to build a new redistribution center in Greenwood, Indiana.

It will go where a FedEx distribution center was planned before that company backed out in March.

Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers says his city is pleased to welcome the world’s second largest company to the community. He says it's "a strong sign" that Amazon would chose to invest more than $80 million in the facility, plus $2 in infrastructure improvements.

And Amazon will be hiring.

"They plan to hire more than 1,250 people and pay them more than double the current minimum wage in Indiana," Myers says. "It’s a win-win for all involved, and we look forward to a promising future.”

The facility is scheduled to open sometime next September.
