tesa tape, inc. is a well-kept secret in northern Kent County. This tesa plant is 39+ years old with a small, family feel, but the benefits and rewards of a large, very successful global company.

We're growing again with another expansion that started in October.

If you’re lucky enough to get in at tesa, our overall compensation is superior to most companies.  In addition to paying for skills gained and an annual merit pay program, you’ll be eligible for a quarterly bonus from your first day. Benefits are effective within a month and new employees get 18 days of accrued PTO and Sick time annually plus 10 paid holidays (eligible immediately).
