NEW JERSEY—Amazon has announced plans to open a 1 million-sq.-ft. fulfillment center in Robbinsville, N.J., which will create hundreds of jobs at the site. The expected investment in the project will exceed $200 million.

“Phase one of Amazon’s new state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Robbinsville will spur growth and investment for the Garden State and our local economies while bringing meaningful job creation opportunities for New Jersey’s families,” said Governor Chris Christie. “Amazon’s multi-million dollar investment in this one facility alone is expected to result in the creation of hundreds of full-time jobs in addition to temporary, seasonal and construction jobs.”

KTR Capital Partners, a private equity firm, is building the project with Amazon, which plans to take occupancy in early 2014.
