FORNEY, Texas — Construction on a 200,000-square foot Amazon distribution facility in Forney has gone vertical.

Weather permitting, the facility is expected to open mid-September, or by late 2020.

In February, Amazon selected Forney for the site of one of its latest distribution facilities in its ever-growing distribution network across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

The facility will be located east of Gateway Boulevard and south of U.S. Highway 80, across from the new Goodyear distribution facility.

Amazon is currently hiring for several positions at the Forney facility including warehouse specialists, shift managers, operations managers, area manager of logistics, station operation manager, and area manager of delivery operations.
