Textube Becomes Creform Corp.

Greer, S.C.-based Textube Corp., manufacturer and distributor of Textube yarn carriers, cones,
bobbins and tubes for the textile industry, and Creform® modular material handling systems, has
changed its corporate name to Creform Corp. The change more accurately reflects the diverse nature
of the company’s products and will facilitate expansion of its Creform product lines, according to
the company.

The company will continue its textile products manufacturing operation under the name
Textube: A Division of Creform Corp.

“We will continue to provide outstanding service and an exceptional line of carriers to the
textile industry, while our company contacts and Web address, www.textube.com, will remain the
same,” said Rolf Mueller, executive vice president.
