Lifetime Named a Top Patent Company in Utah

utah genius 2012.JPGWe've been sharing a lot of new products with you lately... so you know our engineers have been busy.  Guess what?  We aren't the only ones who have noticed. Earlier this month, Lifetime was honored at the Utah Genius Awards ceremony as one of the Top 20 Patent Companies in Utah for 2011!

The Utah Genius Awards are held annually and recognize the creative people and companies  behind Utah's economy.  The awards are based on objective statistics from the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, not votes.

Last year Lifetime earned 20 new patents for our product inventions including patents for our basketball height adjustment, edge & corner for our table, and our playset. These new patents join our extensive patent portfolio of more than 500 patents worldwide.  It takes a lot of time and effort to file for a patent but for inventors, patents are a very important part of protecting original inventions against infringers.  A patent is a property right granted by the government to keep others from copying the idea. At Lifetime, we are proud of our work and we are committed to protecting our innovations and intellectual property rights.

Congratulations and thank you to all of our employees who invent and design our products. We are thankful to have such a great team at Lifetime!

Lifetime Acquires Kayak Company
We've been pretty busy at Lifetime this week and can finally tell you what all the commotion is about. Lifetime is expanding into another new sporting goods industrywater sports! Fun, huh? Just this week, Lifetime acquired the assets of San Bernardino, CA-based Dragonfly Innovation, Corp. and its kayak products. It's a move that just makes good sense for Lifetime. Kayaks you say? Yep, that's right. It's a great way to complement our other sporting goods lineup, which already includes basketball systems, soccer goals, and a tetherball set. And, the kayaks work well with our plastics manufacturing expertise, since they are a blow-molded product. Lifetime will manufacture the blow-molded kayaks in its Utah facility, which means the creation of more manufacturing jobs! Plus, with Lifetime manufacturing kayaks, it's good news fo...

Continuous Kayak Innovation with the New Lifetime Monterey
Our water sports team is constantly trying to improve our current lineup, as well as design new innovative and stylish kayaks. We looked at our popular Daylite and Lotus models carefully, put our heads together, and out popped the LifetimeMonterey! The Lifetime Monterey Kayak is the newest addition to our kayak family, but it still has many of the great qualities of its cousins, the Daylite and the Lotus. The new Monterey is 8 in length and 29.5 wide. We have added enhanced tracking channels to the bottom of the kayak which will help keep the kayak from turning side-to-side with each paddle stroke. It will also allow the paddler to go a greater distance with less effort - who doesnt want that?!As with all Lifetime kayaks, the Monterey is extremely stable and great for everyone from kids to adults. This new kayak also has ou...
