LaDeau’s Reputation Spans More than Seven Decades

LaDeau Manufacturing has positioned itself as a global leader in the hinge-manufacturing industry for two good reasons: maintaining excellence in our products and ethics in our operations. Our customers and our competition recognize our company for its:

*** Expertise – During WWII, LaDeau’s founding fathers worked with the prestigious Lockheed Corporation which manufactured bombers and other types of aircraft. Today, the Lockheed Martin Corporation is deemed one of the most spectacular military organizations in the US. Our founders proudly offered their knowledge and skills to contribute to the war effort.

The post-war aircraft-manufacturing industry was ready to embrace new technologies, and our founders were ready to establish their own identity – LaDeau Manufacturing. Fabricating aircraft hinge assemblies was the main focus but, today, LaDeau serves the large-scale needs of San Jose, national and global industries, including marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security venues.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means our customers will receive unsurpassed robustness and reliability with every hinge LaDeau manufactures. Our quality control measures 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 99.8% consumer-acceptance rate as well as being independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

*** Capabilities – LaDeau utilizes equipment and procedures designed for unusual detailing, combinations, and configurations. LaDeau’s custom hinges possess a caliber of strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution to address any type of unconventional, demanding need.

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.
