CARTERET - Amazon is expanding its presence in New Jersey, announcing plans to build two more fulfillment centers that will bring more than 2,000 jobs to the state.

The online retail giant already operates three fulfillment centers in New Jersey with more than 5,000 workers.

Amazon said Wednesday it will open a second fulfillment center in Carteret, employing more than 1,500 people. The other new warehouse will be in Florence and employ more than 500.

Amazon Vice President Akash Chauhan says the expansion is "directly tied to our increasing customer demand."
