Ambius company history

As the world’s largest interior landscaping company, Ambius is the premier creator of ambience for indoor environments. Ambius began with a simple belief – to offer our customers a great way to beautify their workplace to stimulate their senses, and experience the great benefits plants have to offer. Since then, Ambius has evolved into a brand that has united us on a global scale. We are committed helping our customers get the most out of their interior space, and achieve their business goals in beautiful, healthy and sustainable environments.

Founded in 1963, Ambius (launched as Tropical Plant Rentals) is part of Rentokil Initial plc, one of the largest and most diverse business support service companies globally. The company has over 66,000 employees and provides a range of support services to over 1.5 million customers in 60 countries. The family of brands have come to represent consistent, high quality service, and consummate professionalism protecting people and enhancing lives. Ambius comprises of 2,500 colleagues servicing over 60,000 customers in 16 countries around the world, including Europe, North America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.

Tropical Plant Rentals began the expansion into other markets in 1975, becoming the leader in the emerging interiorscape industry. In 1988, Tropical Plant Rentals was sold to Rentokil Initial Plc, the largest service based organization in the UK.

The company was renamed Rentokil Tropical Plant Services in 1988. In 2008, the company was re-branded to Ambius - our Australian name change follows the global re-branding from Rentokil Tropical Plants to Ambius which was launched in 12 countries in 2007.

The name Ambius was created from the word ambience. People and plants were the backbone of this decision; specifically, our role in creating the very best environment that people can work and relax in.

We believe an Ambius environment can stimulate people’s senses to inspire ideas, improve health and lift moods. While our ‘roots’ are clearly in beautifying work environments with plants, Ambius reflects our expanded vision to enhance the total workplace environment and our ever expanding capabilities as the premier provider of enhancing the work experience for our clients.
