TESA tape is one of the leading manufacturers of self adhesive tapes and tape solutions with global presence in sales and manufacturing locations. tesa’s success story begins with the unsuccessful development of an adhesive bandage in 1890. Paul C. Beiersdorf, a pharmacist, was at work on the bandage when Dr. Oscar Troplowitz took over the lab from the company’s founder in 1890. The bandage adhered excellently, but was irritating to skin. Troplowitz made a virtue of necessity and, in 1896, launched the first technical adhesive tape.
