Ceradyne Receives $42.8 Million Ceramic Body Armor Order

Ceradyne, Inc. recently announced the receipt of a $42.8 million delivery order for its lightweight ceramic body armor. This is the eighth delivery order received under the $461 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract announced on August 20, 2004. Including this delivery order, orders received under this contract total approximately $335 million, with approximately $126 million in unplaced options. The contract was awarded to Ceradyne by the U.S. Army Unique Missions Division, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Md. "We believe that the additional ceramic armor manufacturing capacity, which has been brought on stream in our new Lexington, Ky., and Irvine, Calif., armor facilities has enabled us to meet our quality and delivery projections to the government," said Joel Moskowitz, chief executive officer.
