LaDeau – Hinge Manufacturer Serving New Jersey
It’s not something most people give a second thought to: What would happen to the world if hinges ceased to exist? The short answer is: the vast majority of the world’s daily operations would come to a screeching halt! For thousands of years, hinges were crafted for use on everything from castle gates to ancient war machines, to pirates’ treasure chests. Today, residential, commercial, military, aerospace and defense venues depend on hinges to ensure their daily operations continue locally, nationally, around the world, and within the outer reaches of space, itself.
At LaDeau Manufacturing, our New Jersey customers count on our company’s expertise that spans more than 70 years! During that time, LaDeau Manufacturing has earned its reputation on the world stage as a highly-respected corporate citizen and good neighbor with the communities we serve. LaDeau offers in-stock hinges as well as customized hinges and hinge pins to accommodate everyday applications as well as the most unusual or demanding needs – all, at competitive prices.
Hinges such as spring-loaded, butt, piano, precision, industrial, Mil-Spec, and more are readily available. Your particular need may require hinges that are basic or intricate, miniature or massive; but regardless of your requirements, if we don’t inventory the type of hinges you require, we’ll custom-fabricate any design to fit your needs!
LaDeau’s Continuous/Piano Hinges
LaDeau manufactures the very-precise MS20257 Mil-Spec hinges; and the equipment we use for these specialized hinges is the identical equipment we use to manufacture our heavy-duty continuous/piano hinges.

LaDeau’s Integrity Remains Its Corner Stone
LaDeau Manufacturing prides itself on its decades of expertise; and we are driven by our individual and collective passion to maintain our global recognition as a recognized leader in the hinge-manufacturing industry. Our company’s continued success and future ambitions have everything to do with our:
*** Integrity – LaDeau’s mission and philosophy revolve around four key points: 1) offer only high-quality products 2) promote fair and competitive prices 3) ensure maximized efficiency with production & delivery and 4) facilitate personalized relationships with every customer – always.
*** Expertise – It was during WWII when LaDeau’s founders joined the Lockheed Corporation which manufactured a variety of aircraft for the war effort. To this day, the Lockheed Corporation remains one of the most renowned military facilities in the country. After the war, the aircraft manufacturing industry was ready to maximally forge ahead with aircraft production. It was, then, that LaDeau Manufacturing emerged on its own to fabricate aircraft hinge assemblies.
LaDeau Manufacturing has certainly evolved; and we utilize our cutting-edge capabilities to meet the critical demands of national and international industries that include marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security applications. The detailing and caliber of every product we manufacture must be superior– anything less is unacceptable.
*** Quality – ISO compliance means LaDeau’s New Jersey customers can be assured of the highest-quality products. Our production standards parallel those of 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 greater-than-99.8% consumer-acceptance rate. We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.
*** Capabilities – Strict quality-control standards translate into the manufacturing of hinges that possess the highest degree of strength, durability, alignment, and even-weight distribution. 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 much, much more.
LaDeau Manufacturing continues to cater to the endless needs of our diversified consumer base, positioned throughout the world. Quality and trust remain the hallmark of who we are and how we operate.
