Sumter Today: Sumter makes it to Mars


SKF is one of Sumter County’s leading manufacturers, and their work has recently made it farther in the universe than almost anything else.

Five bearings produced here in Sumter at SKF are on the Mars Perseverance rover, which landed on Mars in February and has been driving around the red planet, collecting data and making discoveries daily. We stopped by SKF in Sumter to learn more about their historic reach to a new planet.
