Since our beginning over twenty-five years ago, our desire to make products here in the United States, and stay in the United States, has set us apart from our competitors. At Lifetime, we believe that we have a responsibility to our consumers and retailers to not only provide high-quality products, but 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, shorter lead time for our customers, and provide jobs and opportunities for people here in the U.S. Manufacturing products here in the U.S.A. is an exciting industry to be in. And with concern about product manufacturing in the United States becoming a high priority, we want to make sure our customers and partners can make informed purchasing decisions when it comes to our products.
We set a high standard for our products and label them as follows:
- Made in the U.S.A. – This tag will appear on all products that are 100% made and assembled in the U.S.A.
- Made in the U.S.A. from U.S. and Imported Parts – This tag appears on all products manufactured and assembled in the U.S. with mostly domestic-made components. Some smaller foreign-sourced parts (such as nets and other accessories) are also included.
- Assembled in the U.S.A. – This tag indicates all items that are assembled in the U.S. with more than 50% domestic content.
- Made in China – This tag denotes all products produced and manufactured outside of the U.S.A. in our wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China or other partners. These products undergo the same meticulous quality testing that our American made products are subject to. Learn About Our Global Manufacturing.
At Lifetime, we’re proud of our humble history. The American dream took a small business that started in a home garage in Utah, to a profitable company, employing over 1,500 employees in the U.S.A. alone. This country has been, and always will be our home.
