Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Completes Rearing of First Production Batch of Recombinant Spider Silk Silkworm in Vietnam Factory

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – November 4, 2019 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, announced today that its operations team at its Vietnamese subsidiary, Prodigy Textiles, has completed rearing the Company’s first batch of production silkworms.  The Company’s specialized spider silk silkworms were hatched over a 7 day period starting on October 8th, while Jon Rice, the Company’s COO, was in Vietnam.  The silkworms began spinning cocoons on October 27th and finished on November 2nd

The Company is already in the process of removing the finished cocoons from the mounting frames, which will be complete by November 6th.  Upon completion, the cocoons will be prepared for the silk moths to emerge.  As reported, late last month, the entire population of emerging silk moths will be dedicated to breeding stock, in order to rapidly expand the Company silk production capacity at Prodigy Textiles.

The second round of production is slated to begin later this month and the resulting silk cocoons will be reeled and spun into finished silk thread.  This thread will be the first recombinant spider silk thread available from Prodigy Textiles and is scheduled to be delivered to a collaborative partner the Company has been working with to develop new materials and applications. 

With operations now fully underway, the Company expects to maintain a continuous production output at Prodigy Textiles and will plan to bring additional materials to market to address the backlog of inquiries in the coming months. 

“The Prodigy Textiles production ramp up continues to demonstrate the efficacy of our manufacturing strategy. The success of this first wave of operations will serve as the blueprint for the successive expansion.  Our direct, drop-in strategy is already proving its effectiveness to scale Dragonsilk 2.0.   We believe this demonstration of rapid expansion will clear the path to fast-track our operations growth and quickly reach our targeted capacity,” Rice said.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Spider Silk Facility to Break Corporate Production capacity Records within First Months of Operation

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – Oct 28, 2019 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, announced today that operations at its Vietnamese production facility, which just formally kicked off earlier this month, are on track to set new production capacity records for the Company.

As expected, the first batch of production silkworms, announced earlier this month, are thriving on their diet of fresh mulberry leaves and the warm, humid climate at the facility in Vietnam. 

The Company expects that this first round of production will be complete within two to three weeks.  The entire population of emerging silk moths, from this first production cycle, will be dedicated to breedstock population expansion, resulting in a more than a 100x increase in silkworm egg production and preparing for what the Company believes will be its largest production batch, scheduled for November. 

The November production batch, in Vietnam, is expected to expand the Company’s capacity to produce its specialized recombinant spider silk to a level that collectively exceeds the entirety of its U.S based production, over the last ten years. 

This critical milestone, in the Company’s commercialization of eco-friendly and cost effective recombinant spider silk, has been the key focus of Company management’s initiative to create high performance and environmentally sustainable alternatives to synthetic textiles. The completion of this first wave of production is validating the Company’s business model and its transgenic spider silk silkworms. The Company expects that its factory will have capacity to produce more than 8 metric tons of its specialized silk in 2020, with a total capacity of roughly 40 metric tons per year, once fully utilized.

“There has been considerable interest in Kraig Labs’ high performance fibers, from multiple internationally recognized brands, so bringing our specialized silkworms online should allow us to deliver our first large batch of fabric and begin to fulfill the fiber request backlog,” said COO Jon Rice.  “Having now successfully delivered the silkworms to the factory, watched our team hard at work rearing this first batch, and preparing the factory for the expanding workload, and walked the rows of silk production rack, tray, and mounting boxes, I believe that we are on track to meet our production targets for 2020.”
