2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Ambius. For half a century, Ambius has worked diligently to develop and retain our leadership role as the Experts in Interior Landscapes, helping North American businesses of all sizes and types enhance their workplaces.
Ambius’ roots date back to 1963, when Chicago entrepreneur, Gerry Leider, founded Tropical Plant Rentals. In the five decades to follow, the company experienced remarkable growth, sizeable expansion and (just a few) name changes.
Through Gerry’s leadership and the teamwork of countless colleagues, Tropical Plant Rentals grew from a small regional business into the largest interior landscaping company in the United States.
In 1988, Tropical Plant Rentals was purchased by Rentokil, allowing the company to become a global service provider.
In 2008, the company rebranded to Ambius in 14 countries, including the U.S. and Canada.
In the last 10 years, Ambius has diversified its services to enhance the entire workplace. From simple office plants to breathtaking living green walls, Ambius helps the world to be greener on the inside.
Ambius Premium Scenting enhances the brand image of businesses by creating a complete sensory experience. Serving large national clients in the retail and hospitality industries, Premium Scenting helps businesses improve their customer experience and create “dwell-time” in their properties.
During the holiday season, our 37 branches in the U.S. and Canada transform into Santa’s workshop, spreading seasonal cheer with every tree, garland and wreath installed.
Our secret to success has always been the promise we make to our customers. Every day, Ambius Customer Service Specialists, the Experts in Interior Landscapes, go above and beyond for our customers.
Through teamwork and dedication, our frontline colleagues deliver world-class customer service and continue a tradition that was built 50 years ago.
As we look forward to our next 50 years of success, Ambius remains committed to our 7 Customer Promises:
- Design workplaces that inspire
- Respond, rapidly to resolve any queries, problems and emergencies
- Remain open and accurate in all communications
- Make honest recommendations on products & services
- Deliver insight & information about what we do as a company
- Deliver service that can be relied on
- Minimize our impact on the environment
I believe that we have both the focus and teamwork in place to continue to deliver outstanding results.
Every Ambius colleague should be proud of all that we have accomplished these 50 years, as well as all that we will accomplish in the future.
-John Myers, Ambius President & CEO
