INDIANAPOLIS – More than 2,000 jobs are headed to the Hoosier state.

Amazon.com announced on Tuesday the company would add 10,000 jobs nationwide.

“As the Crossroads of America, Indiana is positioned logistically to help Amazon better serve its customers with efficiency,” Gov. Mike Pence said in a statement. “It’s great to see that Amazon, a very strong global company that already employs more than 7,000 Hoosiers, has recognized Indiana as a state that works and a place where it can continue to expand and employ thousands of Hoosiers.”

Amazon has a presence in Indianapolis, Whitestown, Plainfield and Jeffersonville. Most of the jobs in Indiana will be in the Indianapolis area but 700 will be in the southern part of the state.

This is the fourth expansion the company has announced since 2007.
