More Amazon Warehouses Coming to Colo., Conn., Ore.

In a flurry of announcements over the past week, Amazon unveiled plans for several new fulfillment centers, most recently in Thornton, Colo.; North Haven, Conn; and Troutdale, Ore. Akash Chauhan, the company's v-p of North American Operations, said "we are excited" about all three facilities.

Individual state leaders agreed. "We are pleased to continue working with Amazon as it grows and creates jobs in Colorado," said Governor John Hickenlooper. Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy called the development "a significant win for our state’s taxpayers and our economy"; and Oregon Governor Kate Brown said, "Amazon’s expansion in Oregon brings us great jobs with competitive wages and bright futures for its employees and communities."
