Amazon.com Inc. announced plans to establish an e-commerce warehouse and distribution operation in Frederick County, VA. The one-million-square-foot facility, which will go north in Whitehall Commerce Center in Clear Brook, is expected to create 1,000 jobs. The state of Virginia successfully competed against West Virginia for the project.
The new facility will be added to additional warehouse and distribution operations in Virginia’s Chesterfield and Dinwiddie Counties.
The Amazon project is the second in 2017 promising to add 1,000 jobs in Frederick County. In January 2017, Vienna, VA-based Navy Federal Credit Union announced it would spend $100 million to expand its Frederick operations center.
