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.

Building Our Lifetime Shed - Step 3
It's official! Our Lifetime shed building project is finished! A few weeks ago we added a wood "skirt" to the front of the wood platform to hide the gap underneath, to prevent critters from getting under our shed, and to make it more attractive. Since we have a wood fence around our yard, we bought two more fence boards and cut them into short pieces. We nailed them onto the platform and basically made a miniature fence along the bottom front of the shed. We then stained it to match the rest of our fencing. It turned out great! We used some of the rock that was left from building our house (and rock that we dug up in our yard when we built our shed) to build some landscaping beds around the shed. We planted a few pansies, and a bush, and - voila- we were done! We originally built our Lifetime shed to get rid of some of the c...

Win a Lifetime Garden Caddy
This giveaway had ended.Spring is finally starting to show up and give us hope for a warmer world! It's funny how by late Fall I am tired of yard work, but by Spring, I am itching to get out there and pull some weeds. Like for many of you, it seems to me that the yard projects never end. This season, we at Lifetime are excited to announce another innovative product to help you get those yard chores done. The Lifetime Garden Caddy. Here is how my typical time working in the yard is spent: I go to my Lifetime Shed and pull out my Lifetime Wheel Barrow. Then I climb, fall, and otherwise search for the tools I am going to need for my project throughout my shed. To carry them all to the worksite I put them in my wheel barrow usually losing the shovel or other tool along the way. Finally ready to work, I empty out the tools from t...
