2011 Highlights: Lifetime Named Greatest Contributor

greatest contributor.JPGWhat a great way to end 2011!  A few weeks ago, Lifetime received the Greatest Contributor Award during the third annual "Entrepreneur Excellence" awards banquet hosted by the Northfront Entrepreneur Alliance.  Obviously, we are thrilled with this honor!  This prestigious award is given to a company that has contributed heavily to expanding and growing entrepreneurial activity in Northern Utah.  According to the Northfront Entrepreneur Alliance, Lifetime was chosen for its large economic impact on Utah.  

“Lifetime has demonstrated it is family-oriented and cares about its employees," said Northfront Entrepreneur Alliance Advisory Board Member and presenter of the award, Kent Sulser. “Lifetime has been adaptable and able to survive in many economic climates. Lifetime has shown innovation in its products and business practices, as well as having contributed strongly to the community through various activities. They are truly a great company, but equally important, they are great people.”

This award is a culmination and reflection of all of our many accomplishments from 2011.  As I sat down to write this blog post, I realized what an amazing 2011 year Lifetime has had.  Check out just a few of our many milestones, highlights, and accomplishments from 2011:
 

  • Celebrated our 25th corporate anniversary and our invention of the first quick to adjust basketball hoop
  • Introduced approximately 100 new product models
  • Acquired Emotion Kayaks
  • Added over 120 new USA retail accounts
  • Grew international sales by 18 percent
  • Added 27 new patents
  • Received tax incentive to expand in Utah from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development
  • Over 900 employees donated approximately 2,700 man-hours building a hiking trail and beautifying a park and cemetery in Utah
  • Six Lifetime engineers honored at Utah Genius Awards
  • Lifetime CFO Mark Whiting named CFO of the Year by Utah Business magazine
  • Named Greatest Contributor in Northern Utah by Northfront Entrepreneur Alliance
     

We think that's a pretty impressive list!  So, as we usher in a new year, here's to a wonderful 2011 and an even more amazing 2012!

Lifetime Round Tables
King Arthur used round tables in his court as a symbol of equality, that even he, as King, was an equal to the Knights in his court. Maybe thats why Lifetime round tables are so popular! Lifetime round tables are generally easier to move around than square or rectangular tables, you simply fold them up, and wheel them away. Not only that, Lifetime round tables typically can seat more people and have more available work-space than your typical card table, without taking up any more space to store. Lifetime round tables are ideal for garage sales, scrapbooking, photo-albums, game night, special occasions, church functions, banquets, and even Sunday dinner. Several models, colors, sizes, and options are available. Head on over to BuyLifetime.com and pick out your Lifetime round table today!
