Our Worldwide presence
Smithers-Oasis Company is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of floral foam, floral accessories, cellular growing media and post-harvest products.
Our Company founder, V.L. Smithers, invented the world’s first water-absorbing floral foam in 1954, which revolutionized the floral industry.
In 1938, the first flower food was developed and introduced by Floralife, Inc. Since that time our Floralife® brand of post-harvest products has led the industry in the care and handling of cut flowers.
The full circle of flower care and floral design products offered under these two leading brands can touch every flower, from field to table, worldwide.
Our customers and partners include florists, growers, wholesalers, floral design schools, mass market retailers and bouquet manufacturers throughout the world.
Our Commitment to the Industry
We are dedicated to supporting the floriculture industry in many ways, particularly by building relationships with florists, floral designers and growers around the world. We achieve this through the support of floral design schools, participation in trade events, cooperation with non-profit organizations for floriculture research and development.
Through Ambassadors, we provide educational programs in many countries with the goal of inspiring new florists and equipping them for tomorrow’s needs.
Our continuing support to the industry includes developing innovative, solutions-oriented products based on customer’s needs and committing resources to educating a new generation of florists and growers.
