Developer of spider silk based fibres Kraig Biocraft Laboratories said it has completed the build out of its new Indiana production facility ahead of schedule and is installing the last piece of process equipment.

Over the next week the company will complete all pre-production checks and plans to start bringing in silkworms in the week beginning August 15.

According to the company, this facility was set up with the intent to fulfill its contract with the US government; however, additional production capacity will be marketed to other clients.

COO Jon Rice said, “The Indiana production centre represents our first domestic production expansion and is a major step towards our near term goal of a fully self-contained US spider silk production facility.”

CEO Kim Thompson too said, “Our efforts have demonstrated the ability to recreate the incredible properties of spider silk. This facility now demonstrates that we can bring those materials to the market.” (AR)
