In January 2007, Smithers-Oasis Company acquired Floralife. This union combined to provide a full circle of flower care and floral design products, as well as expanded distribution and research capabilities throughout the floriculture industry, worldwide.

Since our earliest days in 1954, when V.L. Smithers revolutionized the floral industry with the creation of water-absorbing foam for florists, Smithers-Oasis has grown into a leading global manufacturer and marketer of floral foam, floral accessory products, cellular growing media, and postharvest products. Today, OASIS® is the most recognized and trusted brand in the floral industry.

Our network of facilities around the world enables Smithers-Oasis to provide products and services to the local market, reflecting cultural preferences and traditions. Our operating units all have the same goal: to provide solution-based products, education, design techniques, and inspiration for florists and floral designers, while supporting the industry through long-standing partnerships.

Our distribution partners, consisting of wholesalers and distributors, ensure that florists and growers worldwide can rely on OASIS® branded products to create their designs and grow their businesses.

Our Floralife® Postharvest Products allow us to provide a complete line of care and handling solutions to the industry, built on more than 70 years of testing and development to enhance customer satisfaction.
