All manufacturing procedures for the M-ATV components have been approved, and Ceradyne production commenced last month.

Ceradyne, Inc. recently announced that it has received a multi-million-dollar blanket purchase order from Plasan Sasa Ltd., Israel, for the production of armor components for the MRAP all terrain vehicle (M-ATV). Ceradyne plans to produce these parts in its expanded armor assembly plant in Irvine, Calif., for delivery to Oshkosh Corp., the prime contractor. Oshkosh will assemble the components and deliver the M-ATV to the government.

All manufacturing procedures for these M-ATV components have been approved, and Ceradyne production commenced last month. It is anticipated that production and delivery will continue throughout 2010.

According to Marc King, Ceradyne’s Armor Systems president, Ceradyne was pleased to work in cooperation with Plasan in order to insure that quality M-ATV parts are delivered on an expedited delivery schedule to Oshkosh in order to support our troops in the field.
