At LaDeau Manufacturing, our customers benefit from our:

* Expertise – It was in 1946 when our founders’ prior wartime service at Lockheed Corporation carried over into the post-war aircraft industry.  It was, then, that LaDeau Manufacturing emerged as a sovereign hinge manufacturer.  At that time, hinge assemblies for post-war aircraft became LaDeau’s niche product.  Today, LaDeau serves industries locally, nationally, and globally which rely on our insight, skill-sets, and technologies.  We are proud of our history of 70+ years, and we leverage well over 100 years of combined experience for all of our Wisconsin customers.

* Quality – ISO compliance ensures product-quality of the highest caliber.  Our manufacturing standards are based on our founders’ original commitment to apply the stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial.  As an ISO-9001:2015 certified World-Class hinge manufacturer, we have earned a 99.8% consumer acceptance rate, and we are independently certified by a variety of aerospace primes.

* Capabilities – Special notches, non-traditional hole diameters, modified hinge lengths & widths, shape & mounting options, and unique combinations & configurations come into play to create custom hinges of mind-boggling varieties.  Special instructions with identification, trimming, notching, lancing, imprinting – the list goes on – are met with meticulous precision.  Our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating and so much more.

Our factory-direct shipping means our Wisconsin patrons can enjoy increased savings and decreased lead times!

Fun Custom-Hinge Fact

One of the heaviest custom-hinged doors in the world is located at the US Energy Department’s Neutron Test Facility in Livermore, California.  The gargantuan structure – serving as a neutron fusion power shield – is 8 feet thick and almost 12 feet wide.  The door is filled with concrete which accounts for the astonishing weight of 97,000 pounds!

Due to the door’s customized hinge components – which include special bearings – a single person can move the door back and forth with impressive ease!
