Mil-Spec Hinge Pin Manufacturer Serving Tennessee

Thank you for visiting LaDeau, a Mil-Spec hinge pin manufacturer serving Tennessee with a seven-decade long commitment to perfection.

Our founders started in the industry working for the Lockheed Corporation during WWII. They gained an appreciation for excellence and efficiency from their experience.

After the war, they took what they learned and started LaDeau. Their goal was to create a business that brought military-grade manufacturing to both government and civilian clients.

Today LaDeau continues to fulfill the commitment to quality our founders made. We’re proud to serve industries ranging from aerospace to transportation.

Living Up to the Department of Defense’s Guidelines

In order to call ourselves a Mil-Spec hinge pin manufacturer serving Tennessee, we had to gain a reputation for excellence. Our ISO-9001:2015 demonstrates that passion.

We’ve earned our reputation by inspecting all processes of our manufacturing to ensure they adhere to the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) standards.

The DoD sets standards for all facets of the manufacturing process to make sure they receive reliable products. Furthermore, by setting such strict standardization they’ll know exactly what they’re getting when they make an order.

To bring that same reliability to our Tennessee clients our manufacturing meets DoD standards for:

  • Procedures, processes, practices, and methods

  • Technical requirements

  • Design criteria

  • Material types and sources

Because of our adherence to DoD guidelines, we’ve made our mark in leading industries. For instance, we tout multiple independent certifications from our aerospace clients. Even more, we boast a 99.8% acceptance rate from our customers. We work hard to ensure military grade reliability for our Tennessee customers.

We’re Ready for Anything

We know our clients are working on equipment such as armored doors, satellites, and ambulances. It’s expected that such a wide variety of equipment will require more than just one model of hinge pin.

After 70 years in the business, we’ve accumulated all the tools, machinery, and expertise needed to take on any request you have for us. All our tooling is done in-house so our hinge pins are fully customizable.

Whether you need specific dimensions or a unique finish for your hinge pins, we’re up for the job. We’re also ready and happy to provide staking, pin spinning, powder coating, degreasing, passivating, plating, and more.

We also keep our offices and manufacturing in-house to provide seamless customer service. Because we keep everything in-house, we’re prepared for the likes of last-minute orders and highly specific requests.

Keeping our supply chain together, we avoid the hassles of waiting on various entities to coordinate last second projects. We’re able to coordinate all aspects of our manufacturing to guarantee effortless delivery no matter the request.

Holding Ourselves to a Higher Standard Than the Rest

Our team stays hyper focused on delivering standardized, reliable, and unbeatable Mil-Spec hinge pins. That’s because our clients rely on us to deliver products that are ready for any task that’s thrown at them.

When working with cutting edge industries we set the bar above the average manufacturer. In order to do so, we ensure our hinge pins are:

*** Standardized – You can’t talk about Mil-Spec without bringing up standardization. Everything in the military down to the shine of your boots is specified. That’s because standardization is king when it comes to speed, consistency, and dependability.

We believe when you find a design that performs better than all others, stick with it. Our Mil-Spec hinge pins are engineered to sustain tremendous weights, immense pressures, and vigorous vibrations.

*** Reliable – Our Mil-Spec hinge pins are built for the most advanced equipment known to man. Even more, we know people rely on our hinge pins for their personal safety. To hold to the trust our clients place in us, we hold numerous in-house inspections to guarantee perfection.

*** Quality – The DoD isn’t looking for any ordinary commercial hinge pin. They need hinge pins that will hold the incredible weight of armored doors and provide the intricate functioning of exoskeleton joints. Our hinge pins meet those standards.

Our hinge pins can withstand chemical agents, unimaginable force, and extreme conditions. From prized workmanship to the finest materials, our hinge pins beat the rest.

*** Value – We know our customers have deadlines and budgets to meet. That’s why we not only provide the strongest and most reliable hinge pins on the market. We also offer the best deals.

We take our role as a world class Mil-Spec hinge pin manufacturer serving South Dakota seriously. We know our clients are looking to provide the same high-quality service to their own customers. That’s why we take speed and affordability to heart.

The LaDeau team cares about our relationships. We’ve gone out of our way time and time again to help our clients meet their needs. Whether you’re looking for an expedited order or an absurdly specific request, we’ll be more than happy to help.
