German adhesive tape tesa officially opens new site in Hai Phong

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.

A University of North Carolina graduate student charged with killing his faculty adviser walked into a classroom building, shot the victim and then left, authorities said Tuesday, shedding light on an attack that led to a campuswide lockdown as police searched for the gunman.

Tailei Qi, 34, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and having a gun on educational property in Monday’s killing of Zijie Yan inside of a science building at the state’s flagship public university.

Chapel Hill city police arrested Qi in a residential neighborhood near the campus within two hours of the attack and didn’t need to use force to take him into custody, UNC Police Chief Brian Jones said at a news conference. He said investigators were still trying to determine a motive and were still searching for the gun used to kill Yan.

UNC Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz said his team has met with Yan’s colleagues and family to express condolences and offer support.

“He was a beloved colleague, mentor and a friend of so many on our campus and a father to two young children,” Guskiewicz said at the news conference.

On Wednesday, the school’s iconic Bell Tower will ring in honor of Yan’s memory and students are encouraged to take a moment of silence, he said. The school also canceled classes until Thursday.

A Gold Effie was also awarded to BMF for its entry ‘How anti-ordinary thinking drove anti-ordinary results for Tasmania’s off season’, for Tourism Tasmania.

The judges also congratulated M&C Saatchi for taking home a Gold for ‘Every day’s a big day’ for Big W in a very competitive and challenging category. “The campaign has proven to be a big platform that stretches across multiple retail occasions and with continued investment, has delivered a solid discount retail ROI.”

Saatchi & Saatchi, part of The Neighbourhood, was awarded The Grand Effie for its entry ‘How little moments made big bickies for Arnott’s’. According to the judging panel, this textbook case showed how Arnott’s comprehensive marketing, media and creative strategies combined to deliver an impressive return on investment in a difficult and competitive sector. The case was succinctly written, with data that clearly highlighted the power of emotive brand advertising to drive sales in a price-sensitive sector.
