함부르크의 하우스부르크 지역에 위치한 테사 공장은, 1,200 미터에 이르는 점착 테이프 스트립을 공중에 부양하여 건조할 수 있는, 복합 코팅 장치를 도입하여 가동을 개시합니다. 또한 장치에서 사용한 용제를 회수하고 재활용하여 배기 가스 내의 오염물을 매우 효율적인 방식으로 제거하게 됩니다.

1979: tesa plant Hamburg puts a complex coating unit with suspended drying for 1200 meters of adhesive tape strips into operation.

In the late 1960s, the close proximity between marketing, research, and production grew in importance. A new production site close to the Hamburg headquarters was designed to ensure short development cycles. The cornerstone for the plant in Hamburg-Hausbruch was laid in 1971. Since then, the site has continually expanded and with its cleanroom unit and solvent-free production lines, it is one of the most modern in the world.

In 2015, a new polymerization facility was put into operation, allowing tesa more flexibility in the production of modern adhesives. In addition, a new production hall and a new hazardous goods warehouse were built, as well as a modern combined heat and power generation plant, which simultaneously generates warmth for heating and cooling for air-conditioning in addition to electricity.
