In close vicinity to Hamburg Airport, the tesa SE invested 160 million euro into a building complex housing a research and technology centre and headquarters. On a 86,000 square metres block of land at Niendorfer Strasse, tesa now completed its largest project of corporate history launched three years ago. On 7 September 2012, the Beiersdorf Board had approved the pioneering building concept. Following the ground-breaking ceremony in November 2012, structural work begann in March 2013. More than 1,000 guests celebrated the topping-out ceremony in December 2013.
Official Inauguration on 28 January 2016
Already on 1 July 2015, the technology centre and its 45 employees was the first unit to be relocated from Eimsbüttel to Norderstedt. In the technology centre, engineers are developing, for example, innovative, environmentally friendly production for tesa’s 90 plants. They also test the production of different product samples for new adhesive applications or industrial and consumer use before they are being manufactured by tesa works in series.
Part two of the relocationo followed by mid-September. Within three days, more than 7,000 cartons packed by some 700 staff were tracked to Norderstedt. On18 December, also the approximately 280 members of the research unit moved to tesa’s new premises. The official welcome and opening ceremony of the new integrated headquarters at Hamburg Airport has been scheduled for 28 January 2016.
