CRAiLAR Technologies Inc. confirmed that it will commission the Company's first full-scale manufacturing facility for CRAiLAR Flax Fiber on December 17, 2012. Announced on its investor call in October, the timeline remains in place to begin production of its sustainable, performance-driven flax fiber at the new Pamplico, South Carolina facility. Currently, it is supplying the product to HanesBrands, Target, Georgia-Pacific and others.

"We are pleased to be on schedule with the timeline we put forth in October, and thrilled to turn the power on and move into production before the end of the year," said Ken Barker, CEO of Crailar Technologies. "This milestone will put us on course for significant developments for CRAiLAR Flax Fiber and its global brand partners in 2013."

Production Output Projections

The Company plans to tier its output at the facility beginning with an anticipated 150,000 lbs. per week in January, increasing to 300,000 pounds per week in February, and then to level off in the short-term at 450,000 pounds per week thereafter. By the end of 2013, it anticipates the commissioning of expanded production capacity at the facility of 600,000 lbs. per week, and to achieve a total production capacity of more than one million pounds of CRAiLAR Flax Fiber per week by year-end 2013.

Partner Brand Updates

During the Company's October investor update call, Barker outlined new development activities with iconic global leaders in sportswear and home furnishings, two previously untapped categories for Crailar Technologies, that it expects to migrate to commercialization in 2013.

CRAiLAR Technologies Inc., previously Naturally Advanced Technologies Inc., offers cost-effective and environmentally sustainable natural fiber in the form of flax, hemp and other best fibers for use in textile, industrial, energy, medical and composite material applications.
