ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — About 200 people are losing their jobs with the closure of a global manufacturer's Orangeburg plant.

Officials with Federal-Mogul said Monday the company is consolidating its Orangeburg operations to larger facilities in Tennessee and Mexico.

Federal-Mogul supplies equipment to automotive manufacturers across the world, and the Orangeburg facility has made brake pads. The company says it is laying off about 160 full-time employees and 40 contract employees.

The company says the decision to close the plant was difficult but was needed in order to compete in the global market. The consolidation is expected to take about two years.
