Today, the Lockheed Martin Corporation remains one of the most comprehensive military facilities in the US.

After the war, the aircraft industry was ready to embrace new innovations and emerging technologies.  The time was ripe for our founders to veer off and become LaDeau Manufacturing. At that time, the focus was on aircraft hinge assemblies.  More than 70 years later, LaDeau’s vast array of hinges meet the critical needs of national and global industries around the world. Our hinges cater to marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security venues, everywhere throughout San Diego.


***  Unsurpassed Quality – ISO compliance means our San Diego clientele can expect superior quality with every product LaDeau manufactures.  Our stringent production standards adhere to 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 has earned a coveted 99.8% consumer-acceptance rate.  We are, also, independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.
