LaDeau’s Reputation Is Unquestioned
LaDeau’s reputation as a global leader in hinge fabrication is based on several key factors:
*** Unrivaled Expertise – During WWII, LaDeau’s founding fathers joined the Lockheed Corporation which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers. Today, Lockheed represents one of the most crucial military facilities in the US. Our founders proudly contributed their knowledge, skills and insight to contribute to the WWII effort.
Once the war ended, the time was ripe for the post-war aircraft industry to journey towards its pinnacle in terms of manufacturing; and it was then that LaDeau Manufacturing emerged as its own entity, with hinge assemblies becoming the focus. That main focus evolved into expansive products and services which, today, serve the widespread, large-scale needs of national and global industries including marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security applications. Product excellence remains ‘Job 1’.
*** Renowned Quality – ISO compliance means our Maryland clientele can expect superior quality in every product LaDeau manufactures. Our high standards for production parallel 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 proudly shares its 99.8% consumer-acceptance rate; and we are independently certified by a number of aerospace entities.
*** All-Encompassing Capabilities – Addressing unusual detailing, combinations and configurations to craft customized hinges is our passion. LaDeau’s customized hinges, as well as all other hinges, offer a level of strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution that is unsurpassed. A varied 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 so much more.
A continually expanding global consumer-base relies on our company’s integrity. LaDeau Manufacturing will continue to produce extremely high-quality hinges and hinge-pins, of all types, to meet consumer needs in every corner of the globe.
