Solutions for the Print & Paper Industry

What lies at the heart of tesa? Quite simply, a fascination with adhesives

At tesa, adhesion defines us. It’s who we are. Our self-adhesive products and technologies solve complex problems across a wide variety of industries. There is a unique story behind everything we do that starts with a love for creating bonds and ends with sustainable solutions that help move the world forward. 

We’re here to help you

The first bond we create is with you. Through an expert consultation, we learn the ins and outs of your business, because no two are the same. We then develop a tailored solution unique to your operation. We strive to help you improve process predictability and avoid the snags that can lead to downtime. Working together, we help to optimize your production line, saving you time, money and resources.

All of this makes the world a better place – for you, your customers and your customer’s customer.

We’re a partner to the printing industry

After more than 80 years in business, we’ve learned a few things about our customers and the printing industry. Your challenges are unique. So are our solutions.

Through experience, we know:

  • It’s all about your customer.
  • Efficiency is key to profitability.

We understand that you’ve made a promise to your customer, and we’re going to help you fulfill that commitment in the most efficient and effective way possible – whether that’s through improving your paper or film splicing capabilities, or providing a flexo plate mounting tape you can truly rely upon. Our goal is to help you focus on keeping your business running smoothly and keeping your customers happy.  

And, if there’s no apparent solution to a problem? Bring it to us anyway. We find answers to your toughest problems, even if the answer doesn’t yet exist. In fact – that’s where we really get into our zone. It’s what drives us to innovate. We file an average of more than 70 patents per year because our customers trust us to help them find answers. 

People who understand your business

We prefer to be on a first-name basis – right from the start. Our sales specialists KearaRachelJeff and Tim (and Nick and Kelly and Tyler and Ashley and David, too) are pretty amazing in their own, unique ways. Plus, they each have about 20 years of experience – on average – in the print and paper industry. They’ll come to you with the ability to quickly grasp any issue, and may even have immediate suggestions for improving your productivity.

Though they might be the only person you see, they are not alone. Our sales team is supported by a technical “brain trust,” including experienced engineers and laboratory researchers (hi, Alix and Metin). So, when they need to dig deeper for a unique solution to meet your needs, they’re well equipped to do just that.

We’re going to want to talk about your current challenges as well as your vision for the future. You want to go to the moon? We'll find a way!

Remember – we love to create bonds! So get ready, because we’re going to stick around.

Our values

We take our responsibility to adhere to sustainable practices to heart. As a global company, we work hard to minimize the impact of our business activity on the environment – while upholding high quality of life standards for both the planet and people. This is firmly anchored in our business strategy and management practices.

But our commitment to sustainability goes beyond reducing our carbon footprint to include the intangible values, like positively impacting our customers’ and employees' individual worlds. It also means enabling you to turn orders around faster and easier, freeing up time for you to focus on more important things, or, for our team members to coach their kids' soccer teams, or volunteer in their communities. Our goal is for the tesa family – and the customers we serve – to lead healthier, more sustainable, more balanced lives.

Our Commitment to Sustainability
Our Sustainability Agenda

At tesa, we are convinced that sustainability is not simply a trend but actually the most important topic of our time. It is for this reason that we have made “sustainable growth” a core element of our corporate strategy. Our sustainability agenda clearly defines how to align our three pillars of Environment, Customers and, Society.

Business Ambition for 1.5° C' – We get involved!
In 2019, the level of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere rose to new record heights. To counter this trend, we must act – right now. In line with our self-imposed targets for sustainable development, the Beiersdorf Group with the business segments Consumer and tesa have therefore endorsed the initiative “Business Ambition for 1.5° C”.
