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 Composter, now available
Theres a lot to cover when you talk about compost. First let me talk about Lifetimes new Composter, available at BuyLifetime.com with free shipping! If youre not familiar with compost, dont worry, Ill cover that further down in this article, too. I saw initial designs and a prototype at a recent company meeting, and being the back to nature kind of guy that I am I wanted one right away, but I had to wait until the product made it to market. Yesterday I was able to buy my very own LifetimeComposter. First off, this thing is HUGE, but it doesnt take up a lot of space. It fits easily in a 4-foot square (the footprint of my old compost pile), and wow, does it hold a lot! 75 gallons or 10 cubic feet to be exact. The theory behind most tumbler-style composters is that by rolling or tumbling the composter every day or so you aera...
