LaDeau’s Reputation is Rock Solid

Ordinary companies come and go, but extraordinary companies embrace and employ paradigms that pass the test of time.  Four cornerstone factors are embedded in LaDeau Manufacturing’s rock-solid reputation:

***  Integrity – LaDeau’s mission and philosophy have everything to do with:  1) manufacturing precision products 2) offering consistently-fair prices 3)  optimizing the efficiency of service, production, and delivery, without compromising quality and 4) creating personal relationships with every customer.

*** Expertise –  During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers.  Today, Lockheed Martin remains one of the most renowned military facilities in America.

After the war, the aircraft industry was excited to fully embrace the jet age, and new innovations were emerging and more were on the horizon.  Our founders embraced this perfect opportunity to become an independent entity, LaDeau Manufacturing. At the time, LaDeau Manufacturing focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies.  Today, we serve a vast array of marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security needs.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means our Vermont consumers receive products of the highest caliber of quality. Our production standards 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 greater-than-99.8%  consumer-acceptance rate. We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities –  LaDeau’s stringent quality control means any unique detailing and combinations & configurations of customized hinges will offer the highest caliber of strength, alignment, and even weight distribution.  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.
