Mr. Moneybags Steps Up to the (Lifetime) Table

Who doesn’t love a good game of MONOPOLY? At the 2009 MONOPOLY U.S. National Championship, held on April 14 and 15 in Washington, DC, the focus was on the game — and the pressure was on for the 28 finalists. Up for grabs was $20,580, which is equivalent to the “bank” in a standard game of Monopoly.

To ensure that no wobbly tables stood in the way of their peak performance, Lifetime provided the tournament with twelve 37-inch square fold-in-half card tables. (Check out the picture to see them all set up and ready for competitive play). These tables turned out to be perfect for the intense game. Their fold-in-half frames lock automatically, so they could stand up to the players’ table slaps of excitement and fist pounds of frustration. They also come with a convenient carrying handle, making tournament setup and cleanup a snap (literally!). Plus, Lifetime’s fold-in-half tables can be used both indoors and outdoors, so if next year’s tournament is held on one of the real-life streets from the game, the players need not worry!

After three rounds of competitive play, Richard Marinaccio of Buffalo, NY bankrupted the competition to become the new MONOPOLY U.S. national champion. His next stop is Las Vegas, NV for the 13th MONOPOLY World Championships. I know that the next time I’m hosting a MONOPOLY tournament, I’ll be using a Lifetime table — after all, if it can handle the U.S. National Championship, it can certainly stand up to the competition in my own home.

Lifetime Products: A “Lean” Manufacturing Leader - Learns from Toyota
Three of our executives--President, COO, and VP of Research Development--recently had the opportunity to visit Toyotas assembly plant in Japan. Their visit was not to see how cars and trucks are built, but rather to learn more about Toyotas Lean manufacturing ways. Lean is a term used frequently here at Lifetime. Basically, Lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Lifetime has been implementing Lean methods for more than ten years however; there has been renewed emphasis the past two years. Some of which include flow of material and plant layout. The concept of Lean manufacturing is growing in popularity around the world but it originally derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS) in Japan. Our executives said Japan, in general, is an unbelievably clean and neat country which is directly reflected in their ...
