Well it seems the race is on to see who will be the first to mass produce carbon nanotubes for a future space elevator. Liftport joins Carbon Designs who earlier announced plans to commercially produce carbon nanotubes.

From the press release Michael Laine sent me.

LiftPort Group, the space elevator companies, today announced plans for a carbon nanotube manufacturing plant, the company’s first formal facility for production of the material on a commercial scale.
