As a globally-recognized custom hinge manufacturer, our Pennsylvania customers benefit from our:

* Expertise – It was in 1946 when our founders’ previous wartime service at Lockheed Corporation carried over to the post-war aircraft industry.  This time in history allowed LaDeau Manufacturing to establish itself as an independent company.  At that time, hinge assemblies for post-war aircraft became the focus.

Today, LaDeau serves a myriad of national and global industries – marine, aerospace, military, agricultural, medical, electronics, commercial, and security venues.  They rely on our 70-plus years of expertise and our 100-plus years of combined experience.  This is why, for example, Aerospace OEMs trust our talents and technologies to deliver, precisely, what they require.
