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.
