The world’s leading manufacturer of folding tables and chairs, Lifetime was founded as the maker of portable basketball systems that revolutionized the industry with patented technology.
In the beginning, the founder of Lifetime Products set out to build a sturdier basketball pole for his backyard. The result was a basketball standard for the backyard. That was 1972. Today, Lifetime Products, Inc. has applied innovation and cutting-edge technology in plastics and metals to create a family of affordable lifestyle products that feature superior strength and durability.
In the time since those first crucial years in Lifetime’s history, the company has grown to over 1700 employees in 2.6 million square feet spread over 23 separate buildings.
