Manufacturing Day 2014

Happy Manufacturing Day!

Happy Manufacturing Day!

DSC_2049.jpgHappy Manufacturing Day! You might be wondering, why are we so excited to celebrate Manufacturing Day? Because that’s what we do! For over 25 years, we’ve worked to turn raw steel coils and plastic pellets into products each of us can use everyday! I’ve been a supporter of Lifetime for years. Long before I ever worked here. My basketball hoop growing up was a Lifetime hoop. My parents always pulled out their Lifetime tables and chairs when we had a get together. That’s what we do at Lifetime. We make stuff for you to use every day! We are proud and passionate about manufacturing awesome products.

Manufacturing is such an important part of American society. It is a source of millions of jobs and the products we all use every day. Today has even received some involvement from President Obama. Yesterday, he released a Presidential Proclamation, making October 3rd National Manufacturing Day:

“I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with programs and activities that highlight the contributions of American manufacturers, and I encourage all Americans to visit a manufacturer in their local community.”

Since our beginning our desire to make products here in the United States, and stay in the United States, has been key to Lifetime. We believe that we have a responsibility to our consumers to provide high-quality products, but also continue to offer employment for Americans. We’re proud to see how the impact of that decision has allowed us to provide a better quality product, and provide jobs and opportunities for people here in the US. Manufacturing products here in the USA is an exciting industry to be in.

Lifetime Composter, now available
Theres a lot to cover when you talk about compost. First let me talk about Lifetimes new Composter, available at 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...
