Ceradyne Inc. has named Siegfried Müssig, Ph.D., to its Board of Directors and the company’s Technology Committee.

“The appointment of Dr. Siegfried Müssig as a member of the Ceradyne Board of Directors and a member of its Technology Committee represents Ceradyne’s continued focus on becoming a global corporation with a concentration on the development of advanced technical ceramic products for use in the exploration and recovery of oil and gas,” said Joel P. Moskowitz, chairman and CEO. “Prior to joining Ceradyne, Dr. Müssig played a vital role in the PetroCeram® development. We continue to be encouraged by the performance of our PetroCeram ceramic sand screen in the severe conditions in the North Sea for both oil and gas recovery. Dr. Müssig’s entire career has been dedicated to solving technical issues related to economical high-productivity wells worldwide. I am proud to have Dr. Müssig as the newest member of the Ceradyne team.”

Müssig fills the vacancy created from the recent resignation of Bill LaCourse, Ph.D., who stepped down for personal reasons. For more information, visit
