Ceradyne Receive 5 Year Contract to Supply Silicon Carbide Seal Faces Worth US$50 Million

Ceradyne, Inc. announced today that its ceramics operation, ESK Ceramics in Kempten, Germany, received a 5-year contract for its EKasic(R) silicon carbide industrial pump seal faces for an estimated minimum amount of 35 million Euro (50 million USD). ESK Ceramics has developed a product line of these pump seal faces for a wide variety of stringent applications requiring high levels of material properties as well as precision mechanical dimensions. ESK has been working on this program for more than 20 years.

Thomas Juengling, president of ESK Ceramics, commented: "This multi-year order will support Ceradyne's strategy of developing commercial and industrial advanced technical ceramic products which are not dependent on its military product offering. The Kempten operation is in the process of significantly expanding its EKasic(R) silicon carbide product line and this order gives us the confidence that our recent capital expenditure commitment will be justified."

Barbara Schaaf, ESK vice president of sales, commented: "We feel that ESK's customer orientation and focus on quality and delivery are responsible for this recent 'win' from a long-time trusted ESK Ceramics customer."
