Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. a leading developer of genetically engineered spider silk based fibre technologies, has announced that it has secured a long term property lease in Texas for the Company’s domestic mulberry production. The property offers the Company significant capacity for growth with room for tens of thousands of more trees.

Over the next 60 days, the Company will complete the first phase of expansion by preparing the land and planting 2,000 mulberry trees. These trees will provide the Company with the continuous supply of fresh mulberry leaves needed to produce its record setting Dragon Silk.

The Company expects to see an improvement in materials performance and a reduction in production costs by as much as 30 per cent through the use of locally sourced mulberry.

Kraig COO Jon Rice said, “Signing this lease and opening this new facility brings with it a new era for Kraig Labs and silk production in the US. Establishing domestic mulberry production has long been a key piece of our growth plan. We are pleased to be able share the success of our efforts in bringing that vision into reality. Over the coming months, we will complete the planting of the first 2,000 trees and prepare the facility for the next phase of expansion.” (GK )
