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!

A Lifetime Social Room
When I was visiting my parents at their condo in Port Aransas last week, I happened to snap a picture of the condo building's social room. It's not that it was super attractive or decorated beautifully (or even decorated at all!) but, it was filled with nothing but Lifetime tables and chairs! Yep, that was it. Four plain walls, seven Lifetime 6' banquet tables, and numerous Lifetime chairs. The tables and chairs are used every Monday morning when the residents gather to eat breakfast, and at various other times for potlucks, game nights, etc. Many residents also borrow the Lifetime chairs to use in their own condos. My Mom borrowed two so she could have extra seating at the dining table since it only came with four chairs. And, she also used the Lifetime chairs at her sewing table. The Lifetime tables and chairs were an ine...

First 10 Customers Get 40% Off The New Lifetime Netball System!
Be one of the first 10 customers to purchase the new Lifetime Netball system on buylifetime.com and get 40% off the regular price! (One system per customer.) 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 ...
