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 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 product reception took place prior to the luncheon with many of the patented products on display.

Randall Bateman, Utah Genius founder and president of Bateman IP Law Group, mentioned Lifetime in a recent Deseret News article on Thursday speaking about companies creating new products in terms of the overall economy. He said, “It helps us because these people are creating new products that are going to sell. They’re creating new technologies, everything from what L-3 is developing  that’s being used in Afghanistan to Lifetime Products doing a new folding table that’s going to be used all over the country.”

Kudos and thank you to all of our employees who help invent and design our products, some of which include Dave Winter, Jacob Kearl, Curt Nye, Mitch Johnson and Brandon Smith and many more we wish we could mention! We received this award because of your hard work.  Lifetime is very excited to receive this award and we will strive to keep innovating and patenting even more new products.

Shed Project Update
Ok, for those of you following my blogs, we haven’t forgot about our shed project. It just kind of got put on the back burner with summer vacations, back-to-school etc. But, we’re ready to start tackling it again. Like I mentioned before, unfortunately, we really only have one ideal place for ashed in our backyard since we have a sloped yard and lots of trees. It will be in the back corner with fence on two sides and trees on the other. If you take a look at the pictures, you can see where we plan to put it and why it’s going to be slightly challenging. We did some measuring the other day. The space we have to work with is really only about 6’ wide before we’d have to start removing trees, which we don’t want to do. A 5’x8’ shed would fit perfectly! Of course, things are never as simple as they seem with our projects. We hav...
6415 shed
The 6415 shed Shed is an 11-foot by 13.5-foot outdoor storage shed unlike anything youve seen before. Its made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that looks like wood siding and traditional shingles, but HDPE never rots, never has insect problems, never needs painting, and youll never need to re-shingle. But the 6415 shed shed isnt a plastic shed by any stretch of the imagination. The 6415 shed shed has a powder-coated, rust resistant steel frame and rafters. It has lockable front-doors, windows, gable vents, and attic storage, and modular accessory system, the 6415 shed shed is a revolution in backyard storage. The 6415 shed sheds is available with free shipping from BuyLifetime.com.
Table Washing Can Be " Eggstremely" Fun
Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful, special day. Yesterday we finally managed to find time to let the kids dye Easter eggs just in time for the Easter bunny to hide them this morning. My kids had been begging me to do this for days so I knew they were going to be wound up and over-anxious for the activity. I wasnt too keen on the thought of dye possibly getting spilled on my kitchen rug. So, since the weather was absolutely gorgeous, I grabbed my Lifetime Personal Table and egg dyeing supplies and we headed outside where messes are always welcome. I placed the little cups of dye on the kids picnic table and I set my Lifetime Personal Table at the lowest height right next to the picnic table to hold the rest of the supplies so the kids would have plenty of room to move around. They had fun coloring their nam...
