It’s 1993. Nico Grootendorst sets up his company Combifleur. Having started out specialising in cut flowers from seed and sales of young plants, the company soon branches out into breeding. Growing, flourishing and developing varieties that more than meet Western European standards. In 2008 Combifleur joins forces with the vegetable plant specialist Combiplant to form the joint venture Combinations. In 2013 it’s time for the next step, and Evanthia is born. The company leaves Combinations and focuses entirely on breeding cut flowers and pot and bedding plants, propagating tropical plants and optimising seed.
The Evanthia team soon develops a reputation for innovation which manifests itself in excellent original genetics. From breeding to customer service and from sales to logistics, we pride ourselves on our quality, attention to detail and personal service. We think outside the box. We are here for you. And for your customers. We want to help you progress and are happy to assist whenever you need advice.
We believe in partnership. We are committed to forming close, long-term partnerships with all the links in the chain – from nursery to shop floor. We know that we can improve our sector by working together more, and we see that as a shared challenge. Will you rise to this challenge with us?
Working at Evanthia means working in a young team bursting with ambition. No two days are the same, and when you see opportunities, you get the chance to grasp them. We are there for our staff just as we are for our customers. Do you want to grow with us?
