DMC Gets $14.8M In Plates Orders For Gas Project

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) ¿ Clad metal plates maker Dynamic Materials Corp. said Friday its explosive metalworking business received two related orders with a combined value of $14.8 million.

The company's CEO Yvon Cariou said this is one of the largest cumulative orders in Dynamic Materials' history.

Shares of the company rose 17 cents to $18.36 in afternoon trading.
