Our Worldwide Presence

Smithers-Oasis Company is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of floral foam, floral accessories, postharvest products and propagation media for the floriculture marketplace.

Our Company founder, V.L. Smithers, invented the world's first water-absorbing floral foam in 1954, which revolutionized retail floristry. Over these years, OASIS® has become one of the most trusted and well-known brands in the industry.

In 1938, the first flower food was developed and introduced by Floralife, Inc. Since that time, our Floralife® brand of postharvest products has led the industry in the care and handling of cut flowers.

And our OASIS® brand growing media products provide technologically advanced, sterile propagation media (rooting systems) for nourishing and growing vegetative annuals, perennials and plants.

Our customers and partners include florists, growers, wholesalers, floral design schools, mass market retailers and bouquet manufacturers throughout the world. With sales offices, distribution and manufacturing facilities located in over 20 countries, we understand that our actions are viewed by a global audience and we are committed to conducting ourselves responsibly in all matters.
