LaDeau Manufacturing is an ISO-9001:2015 certified World-Class manufacturer of precision industrial hinges, supplying custom hinges, mil-spec hinges and pins, and continuous/piano hinges across the full range of durable goods industries, including the industrial, aerospace, commercial, medical, transportation, electronics and defense sectors worldwide. LaDeau Manufacturing takes pride in our history.
In 1946, Lester M. Laing and Henry J. Thibodeau founded LaDeau in Los Angeles, California, following their wartime service at Lockheed Corporation. The company’s original niche was as a supplier of hinge assemblies to the post-war aircraft industry. In the decades that followed, LaDeau responded to a wide range of customer requests as we grew to serve nearly all industries. From its inception, LaDeau has put unwavering quality first. Years before it became popular, our founders recognized that first-time quality would be the basis upon which our future success would be built.
In advance of the mainstream quality movement, LaDeau’s dedication to manufacturing excellence was demonstrated by the founders’ original commitment to apply the stringent MIL-I-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts, military and commercial alike. Our continuous 68-year history of manufacturing experience and strong drive for innovation and continuous improvement is also reflected in our speed, capabilities and competitive cost.
We are proud to be an ISO-9001:2015 certified, lean American manufacturer with both strong roots and the flexibility needed to adapt and deliver quickly in today’s competitive markets. LaDeau Manufacturing’s Quality Policy is to ship the right product at the right time to the right place at the right price. Today, LaDeau continues our company-wide tradition with a commitment to unparalleled excellence in precision manufacturing. What’s really important is what you, our customers, think about the quality of our work, and with a customer acceptance rate of 99.8%, that says it all.
