Ceradyne Wins $111M Army, Air Force Body Armor Plate Supply IDIQ

Ceradyne has won a potential $111.1M contract to provide the U.S. Army and Air Force with body protection plates widely used in tactical vests of military personnel.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers the supply of enhanced small arms protective inserts to the two service branches, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

The Defense Logistics Agency’s troop support unit received two responses for the IDIQ, which has 18 base months and a pair of one-year options, via a competitive acquisition process. Contract work will take place in California through Dec. 30, 2021.

DLA ordered 177K SAPIs from Ceradyne in 2016 through a $92.7M contract.

U.K.-based defense company Avon Rubber acquired Ceradyne from 3M (NYSE: MMM) in January for approximately $116M cash.
