Kraig Biocraft plans third silk based fibres facility

Sep '16
Developer of silk based fibres Kraig Biocraft said it has begun the process to open a new manufacturing production and research centre. This is in addition to its new Indiana, US facility and its prospective operations in Vietnam. The new location will work in close collaboration with both these facilities and expand Kraig’s silk fibre production.

In order to increase the speed of the process to establish the new facility, Kraig has inked a contract with biotechnology regulation experts, who have a proven track record of successfully introducing new biotechnologies.

“After a thorough assessment of potential locations and collaborators, I believe we have found the ideal location and partners for our planned third production facility,” COO Jon Rice said.

“The regional expertise in silk production and the appetite for ground breaking technology makes this a perfect complement to our plans in Vietnam and our new facility in Indiana,” he added. “This move to create a third prospective production location has been a consistent element of our long term growth plan for spider silk technologies.” (AR)
