Anthura’s family roots go back to 1938, the year when the first generation of the Van der Knaap family started a horticultural company. In eighty years we have grown from a small family business to a worldwide specialist in Orchids and Anthurium.

Jan van der Knaap started a horticultural company in Wateringen, the Netherlands. The company grew vegetables like tomatoes. Years later, in 1959 his son Nic van der Knaap started working with his father.

The young Nic van der Knaap started working with his father Jan van der Knaap at the age of 15. At that time, it took a lot of manual labour in the mine wood greenhouses.
