Additional Information: 

Founded in 1907 in Gothenburg, Sweden, SKF manufacturers bearings and seals, with additional specialties in mechatronics, lubrication systems, and consulting. The dexterity game challenges players to fill each of the ten slots with a bearing ball, while advertising SKF's work in the bearing industry. SKF has had a presence in and around Philadelphia, PA since its purchase of the Hess-Bright Manufacturing Company in 1916.
