The Hai Phong site has a production capacity of 40 million square meters of adhesive tape per year, serving the fast-growing Asian market, particularly the automotive and electronics industries. Committed to sustainability: tesa is aiming for LEED Gold Standard certification
tesa, an international manufacturer of adhesive tapes and self-adhesive solutions, officially opened its new site in the Vietnamese port city of Haiphong today. The new site is part of tesa’s strategic orientation to regionalize production. It expands the regional production capacity and optimizes the supply chains to ensure reliable regional availability of both its products as well as transport capacities and the procurement of raw materials.
tesa currently operates 13 production sites worldwide, including large plants in Germany (Hamburg, Offenburg), Italy, the USA, and China. The new site in Hai Phong is approximately 70,000 square meters in size and has a production capacity of around 40 million square meters of adhesive tape per year, perfectly complementing the existing production site in Suzhou, China which opened in 2005. The additional production capacity will primarily serve the fast-growing Asian market, especially in the automotive and electronics industries.
In the first phase, about 130 employees will work at the Hai Phong site, offering employment opportunities to the local community, especially in the fields of engineering and production, supporting the local economy.
“The investment of approx. 55 million Euro in our new site in Haiphong is an important milestone in our strategy to regionalize production and optimize our supply chains,” said Dr. Norman Goldberg, CEO of tesa.
