Ceradyne Inc. has received a delivery order for approximately $56.3 million for enhanced small arms protective insert (ESAPI) ceramic body armor plates. The company plans to begin shipping this ESAPI production release in late 2010, with full shipment expected to be completed late in the first quarter 2011.
The release was issued under the $2.37 billion ID/IQ (indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract originally issued in October 2008 and scheduled to expire in September 2013. There is a balance of approximately $2.2 billion remaining on the ID/IQ contract.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this ESAPI contract,” said David P. Reed, president, North American Operations. “We anticipate meeting the government’s quality and delivery requirements with this delivery order shipped complete in Q1 2011.”
