GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Amazon has chosen to set up its first Amazon Robotic fulfillment center in Gwinnett County which will create more than a thousand full-time jobs in the area, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Tuesday.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, First Lady Marty Kemp, and state officials championed the creation of a new massive state-of-the-art Amazon fulfillment center in Stone Mountain, saying that both the center and another fulfillment center in Newnan will launch by the end of the year.
