Body Armour order from the US army

Ceradyne : 01 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Ceradyne to supply American military with lightweight ceramic body armour with receipt of new army order
Ceradyne has received a $25.1 million order for SAPI (Small Arms Protective Inserts) lightweight ceramic body armour. The order was issued by the US Army RDECOM, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. The Company expects to begin shipments in late 4th quarter 2008, with completion prior to May 1, 2009. The order is a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) requirement.

David Reed, President of North American Operations, commented: "We are very pleased to receive this FMS body armor order. We believe that the government placed this order with Ceradyne, at least in part, due to its reliable delivery and quality performance on previous SAPI procurements. This is a new order from the US Army and should not be confused with the anticipated XSAPI/ESAPI 5-year procurement which has not been awarded as of this date."

Ceradyne develops, manufactures, and markets advanced technical ceramic products and components for defence, industrial, automotive/diesel, and commercial applications.
