Missouri Governor Eric Greitens posted a video Wednesday announcing that America's largest online retailer, Amazon, is planning to create 1,500 full-time jobs at a new fulfillment center.

The center will be located in St. Peters, Mo., which is located just over 30 miles northwest of St. Louis. 

The facility is expected to be over 800,000 square feet and will be able to hold "tens of millions of products."

Rob Dixon, the Director of Missouri's Department of Economic Development said that “Amazon’s choice to locate in Missouri speaks to our strength as North America’s logistics center. Our central location, international airports and extensive highway, rail and river networks position Missouri as an idea location for this new facility.”

“We’re excited to continue growing our team with our first, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Missouri,” Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Customer Fulfillment, said in a release from the company. “Our ability to expand in Missouri is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce. Amazon is committed to providing great opportunities for employment and creating a positive economic impact for the region.”
