Amazon.com yesterday announced plans to open a new fulfillment center in Jefferson, Indiana, this fall, which will create up to 1,050 new jobs by 2015 and approximately $150 million in investment in the state.

The Jeffersonville facility will be the Seattle-based company’s fifth fulfillment center in Indiana.

“Indiana is home to thousands of Amazon employees, and we look forward to bringing additional jobs to the state this fall,” Dave Clark, vice president of Amazon global customer fulfillment, said in a press release. “We’re grateful to state officials for their business-friendly approach, which supports our continued expansion in Indiana.”

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Amazon.com up to $2,000,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $300,000 in training grants based on the company’s job plans.
