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.

Labor Day Bike Trail Bribes
I hope all of you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. From neighborhood barbeques to lazy days on the lake and everything in between, it seems most people find some way to celebrate the holiday by squeezing in one last hoorah of outdoor fun before summer and warm temperatures come to an end. Me? Well, we are still enjoying exploring all the wonders and activities of our new home state of Colorado. So, we started our Labor Day by attending our little community parade which honored our local firefighters for all of their heroic efforts and endless hours of protecting the Colorado Springs area during this summer's historic and tragic Waldo Canyon fire. THANK YOU, firefighters! Then, since it was such a gorgeous day, we took advantage of living in one of Mother Nature's most beautiful adventure lands and took our kids on their f...
