Ceradyne Inc. recently announced that it has received a delivery order for approximately $36.2 million for enhanced small arms protective insert (ESAPI ) ceramic body armor plates. Ceradyne says it will begin shipping this ESAPI production release in the fourth quarter of 2011, with full shipment expected to be completed early in the first quarter of 2012.

The release was issued under the $2.37 billion indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract originally issued in October 2008 and scheduled to expire in September 2013. A balance of approximately $2 billion remains on the ID/IQ contract.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this ESAPI contract,” said David P. Reed, president of North American Operations. “We anticipate meeting the government’s quality and delivery requirements with this delivery order shipped complete early in Q1 2012.”
