LaDeau’s Reputation Is Unquestioned

LaDeau’s position as a global leader in hinge manufacturing has much to do with four key factors that reflect our company’s mission and philosophy:

***  Integrity – Being customer-centric means LaDeau Manufacturing will do everything, possible, to ensure customer confidence is established through trust and transparency.   We accomplish that by 1) offering hinge products of the absolute highest-quality 2) ensuring fair and competitive prices 3) optimizing efficiency of customer service, production, and delivery and 4)  generating personalized relationships with every customer.

***  Expertise –  During WWII, our company’s founders joined the Lockheed Corporation which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers.  Our founders proudly contributed their knowledge and skills to help advance the US war effort.

After the war ended, the post-war aircraft industry fully embraced the jet-age, and it was then, that LaDeau’s founders established their own identity as ‘LaDeau Manufacturing’.  At that time, aircraft hinge assemblies were the company’s focus.

With time, comes change, and with LaDeau Manufacturing, change had everything to do with the company’s growing success.  That meant our company’s products and services would need to expand to accommodate the demanding needs of national and global industries.  Today, marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, medical, electronic, commercial and security entities are part of LaDeau’s diverse customer base.  These critical industries will accept nothing less than superior products and services, and LaDeau Manufacturing caters to those expectations, without exception.

***  Quality – ISO compliance means our customers can be assured of unsurpassed quality in every hinge and hinge pin that LaDeau manufactures.  Our standards for excellence 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 embraces its 99.8%  consumer-acceptance rate; and we are independently certified by a number of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities – Unique detailing, combinations and configurations are all part of hinge customization, and this is an area of special interest for LaDeau’s in-house tooling department.  Our customized hinges, as well as in-stock varieties, offer superior strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution.

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 and so much more.
