In an interdepartmental media release to business executives, it was leaked that DeKalb will be tentatively one of the next new distribution centers in Illinois. The timeline will be 2023 for this project. As part of a nationwide effort, the online retail giant has commissioned 36 warehouses in the Chicago area since 2015, creating thousands of jobs. This new business opportunity may create more than 500+ jobs.
This follows the development of a new center in Cherry Valley, Illinois slated to open in 2022. Amazon’s new $20 million 141,000-square-foot facility is located in Rock 39 Industrial Park and is expected to bring hundreds of new jobs to the Rockford area.
This success story began as a startup company by Jeffrey P. Bezos, the innovative founder of Amazon. The company, which now generates over $61 Billion in Revenue and holds the title as the world’s largest online retailer, was started out of Bezos’s garage at 30 years old.
A formal announcement will be forthcoming.
