Amazon.com Inc. announced Wednesday it plans to open its ninth Texas fulfillment center in Coppell, adding 1,000 full-time jobs at the Seattle-based retailer’s third facility in the city.

Amazon currently operates fulfillment centers in Coppell (two facilities), Haslet, Dallas, Fort Worth, Schertz and San Marcos with a facility currently under construction in Houston. Amazon also has sortation centers in Irving, San Antonio and Houston.

The new location will be a new addition to the Amazon Robotics fulfillment network, according to Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American operations. “Because of our ability to have more inventory on-hand and increased speed of fulfillment, we are able to better meet customer demand and create thousands of associate roles, which receive competitive wages and benefits. We are proud of our ability to create jobs, spur innovation and provide excellent Prime service to members.”

Amazon employees at the1 million-square-foot Coppell fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys. Amazon’s first Coppell fulfillment center began fulfilling customer orders in 2013 and its second facility launched during the 2016 holiday shopping season.

The project is being developed jointly by Hillwood Investment Properties and Perot Development Co.
