Juengling Named Ceradyne VP, President of ESK Ceramics (posted 2/13/08)

Ceradyne, Inc. has appointed Thomas Juengling, Ph.D., to the position of Ceradyne corporate vice president and president of ESK Ceramics.

Ceradyne, Inc. has appointed its chief technology officer, Thomas Juengling, Ph.D., to the position of Ceradyne corporate vice president and president of Ceradyne’s German subsidiary, ESK Ceramics. He will have authority and responsibility for all aspects of ESK Ceramics, reporting directly to Joel Moskowitz, Ceradyne’s chief executive officer and chairman of the board.

Juengling has been with ESK Ceramics since 1996 and with Ceradyne for the past two years. His doctoral degree was earned from the Institute for Ceramics in Mechanical Engineering/Institute for Materials Science II, University of Karlsruhe, Germany. Juengling has held various scientific, marketing and management positions both in Germany and for the past two years at Ceradyne’s corporate headquarters in Costa Mesa, Calif.

“The 2004 acquisition of ESK Ceramics by Ceradyne has contributed significantly to the successful growth of Ceradyne over the past three years,” said Moskowitz. “Because ESK Ceramics produces much of the basic raw materials used in our advanced technical ceramics, Ceradyne and ESK have resulted in a profitable, vertically integrated manufacturing model. Dr. Juengling’s 10 years of experience, first with ESK Ceramics and more recently here in California as Ceradyne’s chief technology officer, results in the perfect experience background for his new position as president of ESK Ceramics.”

Ceradyne acquired ESK Ceramics in 2004 for approximately $142 million. ESK Ceramics currently represents approximately 27% of Ceradyne’s estimated 2008 revenues. Additional information is available at www.ceradyne.com.
