tesa tape, inc. Named As Official Supplier to US Bobsled & Skeleton Team

CHARLOTTE, NC, USA - Company officials of tesa tape, inc., are pleased to announce that tesa tape, inc., has been named as an “official supplier” to the United States Bobsled / Skeleton Federation Team. The agreement, which was finalized by both parties in late November, names tesa tape, inc., as the sole adhesive tape provider to the team.

As the official adhesive tape supplier, tesa tape, inc. will provide the team with highly-specialized adhesive tapes to optimize the team’s equipment. According to Tuffy Latour, U.S. skeleton head coach, “tesa tape is an integral part of our sleds, as it holds the padding to the pod of the sled and helps the aerodynamic flow around the sled. Our athletes also use tesa tape on helmets and any open areas to cut down on aerodynamic drag, which can help us gain valuable hundredths of a second to get onto the podium. The adhesion of this tape is second to none and is the world leader in adhesive tapes.”

As detailed in the agreement, each party has been granted rights to use select promotional materials from the other party to further promote both brands.

Daniel Germain, North American Regional President for tesa tape, inc., offered these words regarding the new business relationship with the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation: “As a world-class pressure-sensitive adhesive tape manufacturer, we are pleased to support the world-class athletics program of the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation”.

The 2010 – 2011 competitive season for the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Team began in November, 2010, with World Cup competitions in Whistler, Canada, at which the team won gold and silver placements, and ends in February, 2011, with World Championship competitions in Konigssee, Germany.
