History & Background

First established in 1952, Tapemark’s first service offering was printing on self-wound tape. As an early leader in pressure-sensitive adhesives, our expertise evolved to include single-use medical and personal care products.

Today, we specialize in the development and manufacturing of multiple drug delivery systems, delivering both Rx and OTC pharmaceuticals through transdermal patches, oral films, and unit dose topical applicators.

Our 150,000 square-foot facility, located in St. Paul, MN, features 13 class 100,000 clean rooms, a full on-site analytical laboratory, a full-service formulation laboratory, 150 full-time employees, and a flexible shift structure to accommodate 24/7 production. Throughout our entire history, Tapemark has been privately-held and family-owned, with consistent leadership.
