Kraig Biocraft opens new silkworm textile production facility in Vietnam


In Michigan, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. celebrated the grand opening of Prodigy Textiles new facility in Quang Nam province in Vietnam. This facility will have the capacity, utilities, and security to support the planned capacity growth in Vietnam through the first phase of operations and will be the launch pad for future expansion on a pre-designated 50-hectare parcel of land located nearby.

Working in partnership with its consultants in Vietnam, the Company reviewed numerous buildings and locations throughout the province. The Company ultimately selecting this facility due to its proximity to mulberry production, building layout, condition, utilities, and its proximity to shipping ports and the Company’s planned 50-hectare future campus.

“Having now seen the new facility first hand I am confident that we will soon have a thriving operation up and running,” said Jon Rice, COO.  “We are now in the process of getting the final building updates outlined and completed so that it will be ready to receive the first shipment of our silkworms.  Our team in Vietnam continues to put in an incredible amount of effort to bring this ground-breaking project to reality.”
