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

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.

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 splicing capabilities, or providing plate mounting solutions you can truly rely upon. We want 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.

We prefer to be on a first-name basis – right from the start. Our sales specialists Keara, Rachel, Jeff and Tim (and Nick and Kelly and Tyler and Ashley and David, too) are pretty amazing in their own, unique ways.

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.

Our values

Happy flexo printer with tesa support team
Happy flexo printer with tesa support team

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.
