Lifetime to Expand Manufacturing Facility in Utah

blow molding machine.jpgHave you seen the exciting news recently about Lifetime? If you saw the front page of Friday's Standard Examiner, as well as the stories in the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune newspapers, you may already know that Lifetime is planning to expand its plastics facility in Utah!
 
Last Thursday, the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED), in partnership with Davis County and Clearfield City, awarded Lifetime Products a substantial tax credit as an incentive for Lifetime to expand manufacturing facilities in Utah.

This is exciting news for us and the future of Lifetime. As Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson explained, “Lifetime, as a global company, is always looking for product and processes that allow us to expand globally, domestically, and especially locally in Utah where we were founded 25 years ago and are headquartered still today. We are very pleased to have such strong support in the state and local government entities as we strive to provide jobs and opportunities for our highly-qualified Utah workforce.”

The tax incentive granted by the GOED is spread over the next 20 years with the first phase of the expansion beginning in early 2012.  Our plan will add an additional 120,000 square feet of manufacturing space to expand our plastics blow-molding facility in the Freeport Center (in Clearfield, Utah where our headquarters and manufacturing facility is located).  This new manufacturing space will house new blow-molding machines (similar to the one pictured above) for our growing shed and kayak product lines.  As our expansion progresses, new jobs will be created.  We are excited about the opportunities that these new positions represent for our company and for our community.

Watch for more updates about the status of our on-going expansion project in future blog posts.

Lifetime Products has added the unique game of Netball to its line up of basketball hoops so don't miss this introductory special. The Netball system is not like any other basketball hoop. It is designed with a portable 10 gallon base, a telescoping pole that adjusts from 7.5 to 10 ft, and a 15" rim, but unlike other basketball goals, it does not have a backboard. That makes it much more challenging to get the ball in the net! The game of Netball was derived from early versions of basketball. Some of the differences between the rules of basketball and netball are: BBALL: 2 teams of 5 vs 5 NETBALL: 2 teams of 7 vs 7 BBALL: Players are free to go where they want on the ...
