Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc., Lansing, Mich., the leading developer of advanced spider silk based fibers, today announced that it is scheduled to start commercial production of Monster Silk™. The first phase, scheduled to begin in July, 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.”
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.
