Amazon plans to open a 1.2 million-square-foot packing and shipping warehouse in Moreno Valley, its fourth fulfillment center in California, the company announced Tuesday.

The company is finalizing plans to hire more than 1,000 full-time employees to pick, pack and ship small items, such as books, electronics and consumer goods, according to a news release. Gov. Jerry Brown was scheduled to attend the grand opening Tuesday.

The company’s other sites are in Patterson, San Bernardino and Tracy, Calif. Trammell Crow Company and Clarion Partners are building the site as part of a joint venture, according to the release.
