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 Outdoor Storage Box Makes Great Boat Dock Locker
I spy with my little eye a Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box! Yep, while I was in Ohio visiting my parents a few weeks ago, I was happy to spot a Lifetime Storage Box being used as a boat dock locker at the local marina where myparents keep their boat. Although they aren't actually sold through marine supply stores (yet), Lifetime Outdoor Storage Boxes are certainly built to be ideal for a boat dock locker. Like all Lifetime products, the Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box is made of double-wall, high-density polyethylene that is UV-protected so it won't fade, crack, or peel. The Lifetime Storage Box also has a weather- and water-resistant seal thatkeeps the interior dry. Boaters will love the fact that the controlled spring-hinge lid opens to greater than 90 which means you can easily stuff large seat cushions, lifejackets, buoys, fis...
2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map
It's about that time. Time to start planning your garden and planting in your Lifetime Raised Garden Beds. Here in Utah the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am still being careful, however, and not planting too early... a surprise snow storm in June is not that unheard of here. Have you heard about the new Plant Hardiness map from the FDA? The 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map has a few surprises for our nations gardeners. Due to the warming trend in our climate lately, northerners may be able to successfully grow plants they weren't able to grow before. So exactly what is the Plant Hardiness Zone Map? If youve ever bought a packet of seeds, youve seen it. It's the little multi-colored map on the back of your vegetable or flower packet. Different colored zones on that map inform you of what number of zone you live in, an...
