You Just Can’t Beat the Best!

LaDeau Manufacturing’s mission revolves around quality, commitment, reliability, and a continued passion for unsurpassed excellence for our products and services!  Four corner-stone components have allowed our company to offer its expertise statewide, nationwide, and worldwide:

***  Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, our mission and philosophy rest on essential and critical objectives:  1) manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) generate successful personalized relationships with every customer.

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

Timing was everything, and our founders took full advantage of that window of opportunity and launched an independent entity: LaDeau Manufacturing.  The company focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies, but the company’s continued success prompted expansion into multiple arenas.

Today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests with an exceptionally-vast consumer base involved in marine, aerospace, military, manufacturing, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security ventures.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means our patrons expect and get, products of the highest caliber.  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, we are proud of our more-than-99.8%  consumer-acceptance rate in addition to being independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities –  LaDeau’s quality control measures ensure our hinges offer nothing less than top-tier strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution.  Various 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.  As a side-note, our engineering department is extraordinary – talent and dedication of the highest caliber!
