Ceradyne Receives New Armor Orders

Ceradyne, Inc. recently received orders totaling $9.1 million for its lightweight ceramic armor systems for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. Shipments are expected to commence in October 2005 and be completed by February 2006. These two orders included approximately $4.9 million for the U.S. Army's ESAPI requirements and approximately $4.2 million for specialty designed body armor for the U.S. Marine Corps. "The increased capacity being brought on stream in Lexington, Ky., is anticipated to allow the company to not only meet its ESAPI requirements but also various other military ceramic armor systems which we believe will be coming up," said Moskowitz. Ceradyne also recently received an order for $8.3 million for its lightweight ceramic armor systems for use by the U.S. Air Force. Shipments are expected to commence in November 2005 and be completed by March 2006. The order was placed by the Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia (DSCP), which is part of the Defense Logistics Agency.
