LaDeau’s Reputation = Unquestioned Integrity
For more than 70 years, LaDeau Manufacturing has maintained its position as a world-recognized hinge manufacturer and supplier. During those many years, our company has evolved, yet our reputation has remained the same – stoutly unquestioned.
Our Vermont customers benefit from LaDeau’s:
*** Expertise – During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers. Today, Lockheed remains one of the most renowned military facilities in the US. Once the war was over, the aircraft industry went ‘full throttle’ in terms of potential production and advancement. Our founders capitalized on the timing and emerged on their own as LaDeau Manufacturin,g which focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies.
Today, LaDeau serves national and global industries that cater to marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial, and security needs. Our reputation rides on the excellence of our products and the ethics of our everyday operations.
*** Quality – ISO compliance means our Vermont consumers receive products of the highest caliber. Our production standards will never deviate from 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 – When it comes to customized hinges, if you can imagine it, we can create it! The unique detailing and combinations & configurations of LaDeau’s customized hinges provide 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.
