LAS VEGAS, June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Otis reputation for outstanding reliability and deep experience with major projects will be on full display when the company’s products are installed in the new Resorts World Las Vegas entertainment complex. When fully completed, more than 200 units will keep patrons efficiently moving throughout the new resort. Otis is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
