    tesa tape, inc. is a well-kept secret in northern Kent County. The tesa plant here is 30+ years old with a small, family feel, but the benefits and rewards of a large, very successful company based in Germany. The equipment and shop floor reflect high German standards, which is very attractive to maintenance professionals.


    If you’re lucky enough to get in at tesa, you won’t have to supply your own tools, we’ll buy you new safety shoes every year and supply your uniforms. The overall compensation is superior to most companies.


    In addition to market-competitive pay, we offer a quarterly bonus that has averaged $1,407 so far this year ($5,608 for the year). We also have a very good 401k that includes a solid history of annual profit-sharing by tesa. Benefits are effective within the first month and new employees accrue 13 days of PTO and 5 days of sick leave from Day 1, in addition to 10 company holidays.
