Transforming the Table Industry Yet Again!

nesting table.jpg We did it again! Back in 1998, Lifetime revolutionized the folding table industry by inventing the first blow-molded folding banquet table.  The tables were lighter and stronger than traditional wooden folding tables.  Our invention made heavy, wooden folding tables practically obsolete as blow-molded tabletops became the new market standard.  Today, I'm excited to introduce to you Lifetime's new line of stackable folding tables - the biggest innovation in the folding table industry since our original invention! 

Why is this new design such a big deal?  Several reasons.  First, the new Lifetime 6-Foot Stackable Folding Table features an innovative nesting design that allows multiple tables to easily be stacked together for space saving storage. The stacking design also prevents shifting or sliding during transportation, keeping the tables together and organized.  With our nesting table, storage, transportation, and packaging are 20% more efficient.  That means you can now stack 26 tables in the same space that 21 tables previously occupied.  For a church, conference center, business, or other organization, that extra storage space goes a long way!  And, that means you can fit more on your Lifetime table cart, too.

The new design and materials is nearly 10% lighter in weight with the same great strength and stability Lifetime tables are known for.

Like all Lifetime folding tables, our new design is UV-protected, stain resistant and easy to clean. Our sturdy powder-coated steel frame protects against weather, rust and corrosion. The Lifetime 6-Foot Stacking Table exceeds commercial furniture standards and is backed with a 10-year limited warranty.

With holiday entertaining season just around the corner, now is the perfect time to try our newest table. Look for the Lifetime 6-Foot Stackable Table at Sam’s Club locations nationwide this November.

Building Our Lifetime Shed – Step 2
Since its been over a week since I last blogged, youre probably hoping that building our shed really didnt really take this long! Dont worry, it didnt. I just havent had a chance to sit down and write about it amidst all of our Thanksgiving festivities, preparations for family visiting, and Christmas decorating. As youll recall, after almost a full days work, we finally had our ground leveled and our wood platform built for our shed. We strategically planned to build our 8x5 Lifetime shed on Veterans Day since Mike would have the day off, but the kids would both be in preschool. We were under a ticking time clock five hours of uninterrupted, kid-free work time. Hopefully, we could build the shed before it rained or before we had to leave pick up the kids! We started at 9:30am. The first few steps required simply snapping to...
Times are tough, so are Lifetime’s products
The United States of America is officially in a recession. Employers are tightening their belts, employees are doing the same. Lifetime Products hasnt been immune, but theyre much better off than others. Back when Lifetime was started, the founder did so on a shoestring budget. The company grew, not so much because of a lot of marketing or rapid expansion, but because the products featured high-quality components, superior workmanship and construction, and were affordably priced. Other companies grew rapidly, funded by enormous debt from banks who, not so long ago, were all too willing to loan money. But in todays economy banks are very hesitant to loan money. This is hurting those businesses that need loans to survive. Lifetime has gotten to where it is today without acquiring much corporate debt and is much less dependan...
What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding. You hear us say it over-and-over again when we talk about our products. But, what does that really mean? In case you don't know, today I'll give you a quick explanation and show you a few photos to, hopefully, help you understand the process of blow molding a little better. Every plastic product that Lifetime makes starts as white plastic pellets, like in this picture. These pellets are hauled in on train cars to our factory. We usenearly 400train cars of pellets per year! The plastic pellets are then pumped to our outdoor silos and then to the building silos. (If you live near our factory in Utah, you may have noticed a new Lifetime logo towering in the skies. The logo is on our newest silo that stores these plastic pellets.) The plastic pellets are then heated by pressure and colored pellets are added at thi...
