Gastonia, NC — Conitex Sonoco, the world’s largest manufacturer of paper cones and tubes for textile yarn packaging, will premiere its new printed barcode and QR code capabilities at the International Textile Machinery Association’s (ITMA) 2019 trade show. “Conitex Sonoco works diligently to keep our paper cones and tubes at the forefront of the latest technological advances.
