MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — Gov. Bill Lee announced Friday that Amazon will open a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Mt. Juliet.

The state said in a release that the 855,000-square-foot fulfillment center will create 1,000 new jobs and is expected to launch in 2021.

“As Wilson County continues to recover from recent tornadoes and the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon’s new 1,000-job facility is a tremendous development for Mt. Juliet. Tennessee has established itself as a logistics hub, and Amazon’s significant investment promises to help Wilson County and Middle Tennessee’s economy rebound,” Gov. Lee said.

According to a release, the Mt. Juliet facility will be Amazon’s second fulfillment center in Tennessee to use robotics technology and marks the company’s seventh fulfillment center in the state.
