Kraig Biocraft to increase production capacity

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, a producer of spider silk based fibres, recently announced that it plans to establish more than one additional production site, including its domestic operations.

The production site would operate parallel to the prior announced plans for operations in Vietnam. The added production facilities will allow the company to fulfill outstanding material request for recombinant spider silk fibres from its partners and prospective clients.

“Although securing a healthy supply of suitable mulberry leaves, to establish our domestic production, is a challenge, I believe that this initiative will yield many benefits, including enhancement of our research and development efforts.  Additionally, some of our end users may require that certain fibres are produced domestically, so this move places us ahead of that curve,” said Jon Rice, COO, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories is the leading developer of genetically engineered spider silk based fibre technologies. The company has achieved a series of scientific breakthroughs in the area of spider silk technology with implications for the global textile industry. (HO)
