Ceradyne, Inc. recently received two ceramic body armor delivery orders totaling $38.6 million. The U.S. Marine Corps, Quantico, Va., placed an $8.4 million delivery order for ESAPI, and the U.S. Army, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., placed a delivery order for $30.2 million of ESAPI. Both orders are expected to be shipped in the third and fourth quarters of 2006.

"We are pleased that the Army and Marines continue to issue ESAPI orders to our company, and we expect additional delivery order releases later this year," said Dave Reed, Ceradyne's president of North American operations. "We intend to produce these ESAPI orders as well as the ESBI (side plates) order announced earlier this month at our Lexington, Ky., and Costa Mesa, Calif., armor facilities."
