Ceradyne, Inc. has received three ceramic body armor delivery orders from the U.S. Marine Corps, Quantico, Va., totaling over $15.8 million. Shipments are expected to commence early in the third quarter of 2006 and be complete by the end of this year. "These orders include both ESAPI and side plates. We are pleased that the U.S. Marines have continued to issue orders to our company that meet their ceramic armor requirements. With our increasing capacity from Ceradyne's Lexington, Ky., armor facility, we anticipate that we will continue to deliver a quality part, on time," said Dave Reed, president North American Operations.
