Ceradyne, Inc. recently received a $7.3 million enhanced small arms protective inserts (ESAPI) order scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2009. This order is a delivery order issued by the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia against a larger indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) three-year contract issued in December 2007.

“We are very pleased to have received this order and believe we will continue to ship this ESAPI product on time with the high standards of quality required,” said David P. Reed, Ceradyne’s president of North American Operations. “Based on non-binding conversations with the government, we believe that there will be additional delivery orders against the blanket ID/IQ contract this year.”
