All of the tesa adhesive tape dispensers, tesa tabletop dispensers and tesa handheld dispensers in the world would probably be shocked to discover that the name tesa was originally used for toothpaste tubes and dipping mass for sausage skins. The term was coined in 1906 by the manager of a clerks office near Beiersdorf: Elsa Tesmer. Take a guess as to how she arrived at the invented word tesa.
More than 100 years later the tesa SE company, a subsidiary of Beiersdorf AG in Hamburg has a revenue of around one billion Euro. It is one of the most well-known brands in Germany and has achieved an aim that all companies dream of: the word “tesafilm” has been added to the official German dictionary with the meaning “transparent adhesive tape”. A genuine success story!
However tesa is about more than just adhesive tape. Around 6400 different tesa products are now available for private persons, trade and industry, ranging from tesa packing tape to the special tesa industrial adhesive tape.
