E-commerce retailer Amazon announced it will open a fulfillment center in Missouri City in 2021, according to a Dec. 7 press release.

Located at 2303 Hurricane Lane, Fresno, the 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center will create more than 500 new full-time jobs, and associates will pick, pack and ship large items, including patio furniture, outdoor equipment and rugs.



“We’re excited to be expanding our network of operations in Missouri City,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s VP of global consumer fulfillment, in the release. “We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders ... and we look forward to creating over 500 jobs for the local community, with industry-leading pay and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”

In the release, Missouri City City Manager Odis Jones and Mayor Yolanda Ford said the new Amazon center will help grow the city’s economic base and expand the Missouri City economy.

“We welcome Amazon to Missouri City and are excited that this piece of the city’s long-term economic development plan has come to fruition,” Jones said in the release. “Our teams have been working hand-in-hand the last few weeks to finalize the deal and we are looking forward to continuing our corporate-community partnership with this industry giant for years to come.”
