SEATTLE – Amazon is adding to its infrastructure in Texas with the opening next year of a fulfillment center in Missouri City.

The 1million-square-foot facility will be focused on picking, packing and shipping for bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment and rugs, the e-commerce giant said.

“We’re excited to be expanding our network of operations in Missouri City,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders as we broaden our footprint throughout Texas.”
