Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today toured the Chattanooga Amazon facility, and said he’s looking forward to the company creating more jobs in the state.
And, a top Amazon official hinted that more could be on the way for Hamilton County.
Paul Misener, Amazon’s director of global public policy, said company officials refer to the existing Hamilton County facility as “Chattanooga One.”
“The one’s suggestive. We’re all counting,” he said.
Haslam said he was impressed by the sheer size of the facility as well as its 1,700 jobs.
“I’m thankful for the real-world investment in Hamilton County,” he said.
