American Biotechnology Company to Open Spider Silk Production Facility in Vietnam

Mar 2024

American biotechnology company Kraig Biocraft Laboratories (Kraig Labs) has announced the commencement of a new recombinant spider silk production center in Lam Dong Province of Vietnam. The new facility is located in the heart of Vietnam’s booming silk market and will serve as the center of operations for the company’s growing spider silk production in 2024. The province is also one of Vietnam’s largest silk-producing regions, providing excellent access to fresh mulberry, skilled sericulture staffing, and cocoon reeling facilities.

Kraig Labs selected this facility and is opening a new operations center to support the significant expansion of silk production scheduled for spring 2024. The opening of the new facility has been organized in parallel with the company’s recently announced MOU with the Vietnam Sericulture Association (VSA) and Lam Dong Agro-Forestry Research and Experiment Center (LAREC).

The company expects that this center will serve as a central location for collaboration with the VSA and LAREC to enhance sericulture in Vietnam. In addition, the Lam Dong plant will also serve as the distribution and collection hub for the resulting recombinant spider silk fibers, yarns, and fabrics.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories is one of the leading developers of recombinant spider silk-based fiber technologies. The company has achieved a series of scientific breakthroughs in spider silk technology that have implications for the global textile industry.
