Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, the leading developer of advanced spider silk based fibers, announced that it is scheduled to start commercial production of Monster Silk.

The first phase, scheduled to begin within the next three weeks, will be focused on establishing commercial scale production capacity. "We have been laying the ground work for commercial production over the last six months with our pilot production program," said Company CEO and founder, Kim K Thompson. "We have moved cautiously and prudently in testing our methods and procedures. It's now time to convert the pilot program to commercial production."

The launch of commercial production follows on the heels of the Company's pilot production program which has been running since January.

"The successful scale-up to commercial production is a significant milestone for any company," continued Thompson, "and, considering the importance we place on Monster Silk, I have to agree that this is a momentous step for Kraig. It is especially exciting because we are creating what we believe will be the world's first commercial scale production of recombinant spider silk."

While the Company is creating this production capacity, it is in discussions with one or more other countries about further expanding and diversifying its production capacity for Monster Silk.
