FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) - The manager of the Otis Elevator plant in South Carolina says his facility probably needs to expand beyond 700 employees.

Otis Florence plant manager Brad Selleck did not give specifics when he spoke Monday to the Florence Rotary Club, but said the company is looking to move escalator production to South Carolina.

The Morning News of Florence reports that Selleck told the group the diversity and culture in Florence is a major selling point, with 14 different languages spoken in the plant.

The Otis plant bought its current facility from Maytag five years ago.
