tesa is developing innovative solutions for diagnostic strips to test blood sugar levels in diabetics. The new special adhesive tapes not only make the measuring process more precise while also ensuring greater ease of handling for patients, but also optimize the production process for the manufacturer of the strips at the same time.

The Plant

With some 420 employees, including 25 apprentices, and an annual production of about 250 million square meters, tesa Werk Offenburg (tWO) is the largest international production site within tesa SE. In 2011, the plant celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Infobox Offenburg:


Some 70 percent of the products manufactured in Offenburg are further processed as industrial products – for example, in the automotive and electrical industries. The plant’s customers include Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Opel, VW, BASF, Bosch, and Siemens.

The other products are intended for consumer use, including the well-known tesafilm®, Powerstrips®, tesapack®, and tesakrepp®, as well as versatile textile tapes.

One focus of the site is on the solvent-free, environmentally friendly production of adhesive tapes. For instance, a new patented process developed in-house has been used at tWO for the past few years which allows all masking tapes to be coated in a solvent-free manner.
