CLEARFIELD, UTAH – Lifetime Products Inc., a worldwide leader in the folding table market, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent Number 6,530,331 B2 (the '331 patent) entitled "Portable Folding Utility Table with Integral Receiving Members." This patent is directed towards Lifetime's best selling folding tables with blow-molded tabletops and foldable legs.
According to Lifetime Tables and Chairs Sales Vice President Vince Rhoton, Lifetime's newest patent adds additional enforcement strength to Lifetime’s recently issued Patent Number 6,431,092. Lifetime prides itself on its innovative and proprietary products. Consequently, a variety of patents, trademarks, and other rights are used to protect the inventive designs of Lifetime Products. These patents and trademarks not only recognize the innovation and distinctiveness of Lifetime, but also provide Lifetime with protection from infringement of these rights.
"The issuance of the new patent is one more step in our quest to protect the technology and products that we invented," said Rhoton. "The patent is another vital piece of support that will help us diligently and properly enforce our intellectual property rights against infringing products."
In 1998, Lifetime introduced the first blow-molded polyethylene folding utility table. Blow-molded polyethylene tabletops are stronger and more durable than wood, and are stain resistant. Today, Lifetime is the world's largest manufacturer of these polyethylene top folding tables.
