FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Amazon has opened its new Fort Wayne fulfillment center near Fort Wayne International Airport.

The massive, 630,000 square foot facility is located off Smith Road near Airport Expressway. Inside, employees take in inventory, sort and ship customer orders, and support network logistics.

“Amazon is a great place to work with highly competitive pay, benefits from day-one, and training programs for in-demand jobs,” said Amazon Fort Wayne site leader Mark Northup. “It’s an exciting day as we officially open our doors at our new fulfillment center in Allen County.”
