Sanmina-SCI celebrates their role in the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon


Thousands of people came out to SCI in Huntsville to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. People who came out got to enjoy food, a photo booth, a space ship slide, and more fun family activities.

SCI is a Sanmina company that makes defense and aerospace electronics. The company was a major supplier to the Apollo program and designed and made nearly 400 electronic assemblies for every Saturn V launch vehicle.

The celebration was put on to commemorate the role SCI played in putting boots on the moon.

Sanmina-SCI Senior Vice President of Operations, Gary Switzer, said, “I personally think that the Apollo landing, it was probably the most miraculous and the biggest team effort ever in the history of the world, let alone the U.S. We were just glad to be part of that and still part of that today.”
