This giveaway has ended. It's composting season. Yes, technically, every day is composting season. But fall, in particular, is a great time to really build up your compost. You can add the leaves you rake up in your yard, the dead plants from your garden and landscaping, the wood ashes from your fireplace, the rotten Halloween jack-o-lanterns, and your kitchen scraps - including most of those unwanted leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner! So, today we are starting a giveaway for a Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler to help get one random winner off to a great start with fall composting.  The Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler is one of our newest members of the Lifetime composter family.  It features two 50-gallon bins to efficiently and continuously batch compost. Simply fill one bin with co...

Well, the election is over! Now, the real work begins. Here in Utah, Governor Herbert was re-elected to a second term. And during his acceptance speech, he mentioned empowering the private sector to grow the economy and how Utah is doing better than about any place in America. To learn more about the manufacturing private sector, Governor Herbert actually toured our factory here in the Freeport Center last week. He first met briefly with our president, Richard Hendrickson, to gain insight on how government can better help Utah manufacturing companies and then he addressed a small group of Lifetime employees saying, “Lifetime Products is a great example of a homegrown Utah business competing successfully in a global marketplace. Their commitment to innovation and providing quality products keeps hundreds of Utahns employ... More

I'm not a wedding expert, but I think it's safe to say that wedding gifts have changed over the years.  Or, at least the way we decide what to give as a wedding gift.  Today, the happy couple typically registers at their favorite store for gifts they want or think they need for their new home.  So, a majority of gift givers simply pick something off the list or give a gift card so the couple can make their own purchase.  Sure, this method has some advantages.  But, in most instances, gone are the days of creative gift giving.  Case and point… I can't remember the last time I was at a wedding and saw a card table and chairs sitting there as a gift.  But apparently, once upon a time, a card table and chairs was a popular wedding gift.  We had numerous entrants to this month's givea...

Man, how time flies! It’s been almost six months since our annual service project with the Utah Botanical Center. If you aren’t aware, every year around one thousand Lifetime employees give back to the local community by participating in our community service project. It’s something I look forward to each year and this year was no different; we helped clean and beautify the Utah State University Botanical Center in Kaysville, Utah. I’ve had the chance to stop by a couple times since the service project in May and was amazed at how much we accomplished. I also spoke to Dave Anderson from the USU Botanical Center to get a quick update on our main project at the service project, the Food Bank Garden we planted. The garden is used to teach individuals about gardening and the harvested items are donated to ... More

Lifetime Receives Utah Genius Award
I had the privilege of attending the Utah Genius Award luncheon this past week, on behalf of Lifetime, as we were awarded one of Utahs 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 Lakes 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 product reception ...
What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding. You hear us say it over-and-over again when we talk about our products. But, what does that really mean? In case you don't know, today I'll give you a quick explanation and show you a few photos to, hopefully, help you understand the process of blow molding a little better. Every plastic product that Lifetime makes starts as white plastic pellets, like in this picture. These pellets are hauled in on train cars to our factory. We usenearly 400train cars of pellets per year! The plastic pellets are then pumped to our outdoor silos and then to the building silos. (If you live near our factory in Utah, you may have noticed a new Lifetime logo towering in the skies. The logo is on our newest silo that stores these plastic pellets.) The plastic pellets are then heated by pressure and colored pellets are added at thi...
