Our History Runs Deep
As mentioned, LaDeau Manufacturing’s reputation spans a period of more than 70 years; and maintaining the lead as a world-renowned hinge manufacturer and supplier is our unyielding goal. Not only is our expertise indisputable, but our company’s character is impeccable and is well-respected by our competition. At LaDeau Manufacturing, our success rests on three key points:
*** Expertise – During WWII, LaDeau’s founders joined the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a wide array of aircraft for the war effort. Lockheed, to this day, remains one of the most famous military facilities in America. Once the war ended, the aircraft manufacturing industry was ready to advance, full steam ahead, with commercial aircraft production. It was, then that LaDeau Manufacturing emerged as its own entity, where the manufacturing of aircraft hinge assemblies became the centralized theme.
After incorporating fresh ideas and technological advancements over the years, LaDeau Manufacturing proudly meets the crucial needs of national and global industries that include marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security applications. The caliber of each and every product we manufacture, quite simply, has to be the best – our reputation will settle for nothing less.
*** Quality – ISO 9001 Certification means LaDeau’s Arkansas customers have access to the highest-quality products available. Our production standards parallel those of our founders’ original commitment to apply stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial. As an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, LaDeau Manufacturing enjoys a greater-than-99.8% consumer-acceptance rate. We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.
*** Capabilities – Stringent quality-control measures ensure the highest level of strength, durability, alignment, and even-weight distribution for all our hinges. An array of material and finish options are available – steel, stainless steel, stamped aluminum, or extruded aluminum – and our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming, to welding, to plating, and much more.
