Hinge Manufacturer Supplying Michigan

For thousands of years, hinges have served mankind in every capacity – from ancient war machines to manned space flights – hinges have been there. Residential, commercial, military, aerospace, aviation, industrial, and defense entities all depend on hinges to ensure operations carry on, without ceasing.

At LaDeau Manufacturing, we continue to be excited about our contribution towards ensuring operations of every type continue to function locally, nationally, and around the world. We are also excited to carry on with our founders’ passion that created LaDeau Manufacturing, more than 70 years ago! Providing excellent-quality hinges and hinge pins at fair and competitive prices is what we do.

Being a hinge manufacturer for our Michigan customers means they have access to a wide range of hinge types to suit any imaginable application: piano, continuous, spring-loaded, butt, specialty, precision, industrial, Mil-Spec, and more. Your hinge project might require simple or complex, miniature or heavy-duty, stocked or highly customized hinges – bottom line: be assured that if we don’t inventory the type of hinges you need, we’ll make it to tailor-fit your requirements!


LaDeau’s Continuous/Piano Hinges

Through the utilization of highly-specialized equipment, LaDeau fabricates the very-precise MS20257 Mil-Spec hinges, and the identical equipment is used to manufacture our robust commercial continuous/piano hinges. Original Equipment Manufacturers and other entities, throughout the US and around the world, trust the quality of our continuous/piano hinges to meet their demanding and varied needs. Our aluminum, stainless steel, and steel continuous/piano hinges are American-made in an ISO-Certified environment.

This type of hinge ranges from 0.008″ (0.2mm) thin to 0.186″ (4.72mm) thick in aluminum, stainless steel, steel, brass, and other specialty metals. Basic continuous/piano hinges that serve every-day needs while customized continuous/piano hinges perfectly accommodate the most out-of-the-ordinary requirements.

LaDeau’s Hinge Customization

Being an agile hinge manufacturer means hinge customization is a given. This is an especially interesting part of what we do. Hinges – whether continuous, spring-loaded, precision and other types – can all be modified, down to the smallest of details. Lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other detailing can be altered, with ease, to meet any out-of-the-ordinary request. LaDeau’s manufacturing arsenal, coupled with the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, allow for 1) minimized fabrication and down-time 2) optimized repeatability and 3) pinpoint accuracy.

Our Name Defines Us

The LaDeau name has a rich history, and making sure we carry on the LaDeau legacy that began more than 70 years ago is a big part of our passion as a hinge manufacturer. 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 Martin, to this day, remains one of the most famous companies in the world that delves into defense, aerospace, and advanced technologies.

Once the war ended, the aircraft manufacturing industry was ready to embrace new and exciting innovations. It was then that LaDeau Manufacturing emerged as an independent entity, focusing on the manufacturing of aircraft hinge assemblies to aircraft manufacturers.

Today, LaDeau Manufacturing proudly meets the critical needs of national and global industries that include marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security applications. The caliber of every product we manufacture has to be the best – our name and reputation will settle for nothing less.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means LaDeau’s customers have access to the highest-quality hinge and hinge pin products.  Our production standards parallel those of our founders’ original commitment to apply the then-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. Our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating to painting and much more.
