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.

Last Minute Homemade Lifetime Halloween Costumes
A few days ago we helped my son Nathan make his first homemade Halloween costume. Im embarrassed to admit, but this is the first year we have fully embraced the fun and festivities and attempted a homemade costume. Ive always wanted to, but normally Nathan has always eyed something in the store that he really wanted to be like Elmo, a spider etc. (except last year when he wanted to wear his own flight suit to be a fighter pilot like Daddy!). And, it just made things a lot easier anyway. This year Nathan is really into Disneys Wall-E, and robots in general. So, we made our own robot. First, we spray painted two rectangular boxes with silver metallic paint. Next, we cut the bottom out of the body box, and we also cut a head hole and arm holes. In the smaller head box, we cut out a big rectangle for his face to poke through. Th...

Even the most common products undergo thi...
