Construction underway on Amazon distribution center in Kettering

Local News

KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A Cincinnati-based development group signed a long-term lease with Amazon last month for a warehouse space in Kettering that will be used to house its newest delivery station.

Our partners at the Dayton Business Journal report that by July 15, Cincinnati-based Turnbull-Wahlert Construction, Inc. will create enough parking for 750 vehicles, install three new overhead doors, and make modifications to the building’s dock for package delivery.

There is no word yet on when the warehouse, located at 2000 Composite Drive, will begin operations, but Amazon has posted several open positions in Kettering to its jobs website.

The Kettering facility would allow for Amazon to load their own vans and make deliveries for six to eight hours daily around the region, instead of outsourcing delivery to other companies like UPS, FedEx, or the U.S. Postal Service.
