LaDeau’s Reputation Is Unquestioned
Evolving into a global leader as a hinge manufacturer and supplier didn’t happen overnight – that evolution rested on satisfied customers who, over the years, made LaDeau Manufacturing what it is today. LaDeau’s reputation for excellence is based on:
*** 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 vital military facilities in the US. Our founders proudly contributed their skills and insight to do their part to contribute to the war effort.
The end of WWII opened a time in history when the post-war aircraft industry became an unstoppable force. It was then that LaDeau Manufacturing chose to become a sovereign entity and concentrate on aircraft hinge assemblies. That specialized focus, ultimately evolved into products and services which, today, serve the large-scale needs of national and global industries, including marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security applications.
*** Quality – ISO compliance means our Louisiana 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 enjoys a 99.8% consumer-acceptance rate as well as being independently certified by a number of aerospace entities.
*** Capabilities – If you need it, LaDeau can make it! Addressing unusual detailing, combinations and configurations is effortlessly achieved with any customization request. LaDeau’s custom hinges offer a level of strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution that is unmatched. 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 so much more.
The quality of our products combined with committed customer care means LaDeau Manufacturing will continue to comprehensively meet the needs of an expansive, global consumer-base. Doing our part to keep the world moving – quite literally – is what we do!
