Happy Memorial Day from all of us at Lifetime! On this day, we want to thank all of the military men and women who sacrifice so much for our country's freedom.  And, specifically, we would like to extend a huge thank you to our own Lifetime employees who serve in the military. Lifetime is honored to have many employees who work for us full-time and also serve our country in the military either in the guard or reserves. Several of these employees have deployed recently and we proudly welcome them back to our Lifetime family when they return.  We would also like to congratulate Lifetime Products employee Erik Davies, who recently received the "Patriotic Employer Award" from the U.S. Department of Defense.  Davies, a Plastics Materials Supervisor at Lifetime, was nomi...

First of all, you may be wondering what the benefits are to composting. Well consider the following: You'll reduce landfill waste by recyling your organic materials into a nutritious product for your garden. You'll save money that you may otherwise have to spend on expensive commercial fertilizers in order to maintain a healthy soil. You'll improve your garden's ability to retain moisture by incorporating your homemade fertilizer into the soil. You get to enjoy beautiful healthy plants! There are obvious advantages to owning the enclosed Lifetime Composter rather than simply heaping your table scraps and lawn clippings onto an open pile in the garden. Open piles give off offensive odors, attract bugs and other pests, and just aren't very attractive. Obviously, an enclosed composter will eliminate the... More

In 1986, Lifetime Products introduced and patented the first complete basketball system that could be adjusted in just seconds. Over the years, Lifetime has revolutionized the basketball industry and has literally changed the game to fit everyone’s level. As I’m sure many of you are aware, there is a wide variety of height adjustment mechanisms available, and sometimes it can be overwhelming knowing the differences between them all! Here is a list of some of Lifetime’s main height adjustments to help you choose what might work best for you.  Telescoping Height Adjustment The telescoping height adjustment allows you to raise and lower the basketball hoop without the use of any tools. You can easily adjust the rim height from 7.5 to 10 feet, in 6-inch increments.      Quick Adjust®... More

I had the privilege of attending the Utah Genius Award luncheon this past week, on behalf of Lifetime, as we were awarded one of Utah’s Top 20 companies with the most patents issued in 2009! The awards honor people, cities and organizations with the most patents or trademarks throughout the past year. This past year, Lifetime received 15 new patents! These patents cover a variety of our tables and our fold-up utility trailer. The patents join Lifetime's more than 475 existing patents, which protect our innovations and intellectual properties that our employees worked so hard to invent and design. A crowd of around 500 people gathered Wednesday at Salt Lake’s Little America Hotel for this annual event. Governor Gary Herbert opened the awards luncheon with Doug Fabrizio of KUER radio as the keynote speaker. A prod... More

We've been pretty busy at Lifetime this week and can finally tell you what all the commotion is about.  Lifetime is expanding into another new sporting goods industry…water sports!  Fun, huh?  Just this week, Lifetime acquired the assets of San Bernardino, CA-based Dragonfly Innovation, Corp. and its kayak products.   It's a move that just makes good sense for Lifetime.  Kayaks you say?  Yep, that's right. It's a great way to complement our other sporting goods lineup, which already includes basketball systems, soccer goals, and a tetherball set.  And, the kayaks work well with our plastics manufacturing expertise, since they are a blow-molded product.   Lifetime will manufacture the blow-molded kayaks in its Utah facility, which means the creation of more manufacturi...

January is National Puzzle Month
I was just reading the latest issue of Better Homes Gardens magazine and noticed that January is National Puzzle Month. Who knew? For the life of me, I cant find any information regarding who actually declared this celebration or started it, but Ill go along with it. (If you know the background, leave us a comment and please share!) Personally, I LOVE jigsaw puzzles. In fact, my husband and I put one together every year as part of our Christmas traditions. This year was no different. I set up my Lifetime card table and Lifetime folding chairs in our living room and we started our masterpiece. This was my first year using our new Lifetime card table for our annual puzzle tradition and it worked great. The Lifetime card table is extra big (37 compared to most card tables that are 33 or 34) which means there was ample assembly...
Lt. Gov. Bell Congratulates Lifetime on 25 Years!
We blew out the candles so it must be official Lifetime is 25 years old! As you know, we're celebrating all year long with sales, giveaways, and more. And, last Monday, we held a special 25 Year Anniversary Event at our factory headquarters in the Clearfield Freeport Center.Personally, I'm still amazed at how quickly we transformed a factory assembly line warehouse that was running on Friday into a trendy industrial meeting facility for the event on Monday. The place was decked out with product displays and live jazz music!Check out the pictures, pretty cool, huh? And, yes, it was back to an assembly line by Tuesday! Nearly 400 people attended our celebration, including Lifetime's partners, suppliers, and local community leaders. Our guests of honor included Utah Lt. Gov. Greg Bell and Clearfield City Mayor Don Wood. We were...
We're Giving Away $700 in Lifetime Store Gift Certificates!
This giveaway has ended. This week, we asked fans on our Facebook page what product they would like us to giveaway for our final monthly giveaway of 2011. It turns out, when you make so many great products, you get many great answers! The majority of you wanted us to giveaway a shed. But, picnic tables, swingsets, raised garden beds, and tables and chairs were also voted as favorites. Oh, decisions, decisions. Sigh. Know what? Since it's the Christmas season and many of you have products from Lifetime on your list that you want to give (either to someone else or just yourself), I think it would be much more fun to give away gift certificates to the Lifetime Store so YOU can pick whatever product (or maybe even more than one) you want! So, we'll be giving away not one, not two, but THREE gift certificates redeemable in the ...
