Ceradyne Receives Second Enhanced Combat Helmet Order

Ceradyne Inc. recently announced it has received the second of two low-rate initial production enhanced combat helmet (ECH) orders, valued at approximately $3.9 million. The full multi-year production order is expected by the end of the second quarter of the 2012 calendar year. The total for the initial orders and full production is expected to exceed $170 million. This second low-rate initial production order will be shipped to both the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Army, beginning in the second quarter of 2012.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this ECH order,” said David Reed, vice president and president of North American Operations. “The ECH is a significant technology leap forward for our Marines and soldiers in providing increased head protection on the battlefield. We anticipate meeting the government’s performance, quality and delivery requirements with this order and look forward to meeting all of the requirements of full rate production in the near future.”
