Seattle-based Amazon.com said it has leased two distribution facilities located in Kentucky -- one in Campbellsville and one in Lexington -- that will reduce shipping times to key markets in the Midwest.
The Campbellsville and Lexington distribution centers will allow Amazon.com to significantly increase the number of books, CDs, videos, and other products kept on hand for immediate shipment to customers, the company said.
The existing 570,000-square-foot Campbellsville facility will be expanded to approximately 770,000 square feet this year. The Lexington facility has a capacity of 600,000 square feet.
Amazon.com said it expects its Campbellsville facility to employ 500 people within a few months of operation and as many as 1,000 within two years. The Lexington facility will employ more than 200 people within a few months of operation and as many as 500 within two years.
