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 Employees Build New Hiking Trail
Last Saturday, September 10, 430 of my fellow co-workers and I spent three hours constructing a brand new walking and biking trail in Ogden City, Utah for Lifetimes 6th Annual Local Community Service Project. Each year, Lifetime employees work off the clock and donate their time with our group community service project, earning credit toward Lifetimes bi-annual employee benefit program that gives a percentage of the companys profits to each employee. Since Lifetime is celebrating its 25th corporate anniversary, this year we are increasing our efforts and actually undertaking four separate beautification projects on two separate days. This past Saturdays trail building was our first project and the second project will be held this Saturday, September 17, and will include clean-up of two parks and cemetery beautification in W...
Win a Lifetime Storage Shed!
This giveaway has ended. You asked for it so we listened! In December when we asked giveaway entrants to tell us what they would buy if they won a gift certificate to the Lifetime Store, one of the most popular answers was a Lifetime Shed. So, this month, one lucky winner will win aLifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed! We figured it's the perfect time to give away a shed since some of you probably made a resolution to get more organized this year, others are still trying to figure out where to store all their holiday decorations, and a few more of you might be starting your spring cleaning already. This 7'x7' shed retails for $929 in the Lifetime Store online and is one of our newer and most popular sizes. (Whoa! Can you say HUGE product giveaway?) In addition to its convenient size, one of the reasons it's so popular is because we'...
Winter Kayak Storage Tips
Its that time of year again for a lot of us. Time to store that kayak away for the cold cold winter. We are often asked about how to store a kayak while it is not being used, especially during the chilly winter months. So today, I am here to offer up some winter kayak advice! First piece of advice, kayaks are not for sledding! They go fast but they dont like the cold, so keep them off of the snow! Ok, now for the real tips. As always, make sure you wash your kayak after use. This is especially important when you will be putting it into storage for several months. Mild dish soap and water works just fine, no need for fancy cleaners. Make sure you remove sand and dirt, even from those little crevices. And, just think about how nice it will be to pull this baby out in the spring for its maiden run when it is so squeaky clean! ...
