How we help build your future.

TeMa North America

TeMa North America is building a better world with a functional range of high-performance construction products to waterproof, insulate and provide drainage to buildings from the foundation to the roof. And in Jefferson County, this Italian-based manufacturer is also building a bigger and better business. The company began production at its new manufacturing location in Jefferson County in 2019, and by 2021 had announced an expansion that will effectively double the size of the plant, providing new warehousing space and a new production line.

The Jefferson advantages that brought TeMa to the region—a business-friendly community and a highly qualified workforce—are the same advantages that helped the company grow, with the Jefferson County Development Authority acting as a collaborative partner all the way.
