Ceradyne, Inc. has been awarded a $3.7 million Small Arms Protective Insert (SAPI) contract by the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia for the U.S. Army. This new order is on an expedited basis and is scheduled to be completed in early April 2003. "Ceradyne is committed to redirecting its efforts on a priority basis, whenever needed, to assure our soldiers have the finest protection available," said Joel Moskowitz, chief executive officer. "Recent input to Ceradyne from the military indicates that lightweight ceramic armor is directly responsible for saving American lives in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo and the Middle East."
