INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Amazon says it plans to add 2,100 workers at its locations in Indiana as it looks to hire more employees across the country.

The Indianapolis Star ( ) reports the company announced plans Tuesday to add to its 7,000 workers currently in Indiana. Amazon plans to bring on 1,400 new workers at central Indiana fulfillment centers in Indianapolis, Plainfield, and Whitestown, as well as an additional 700 workers at its Jeffersonville location in southern Indiana.
