About us

The Roots:

It started with the nursery in Hamburg, established in 1920 by Agnes and Otto Fleischhauer the parents of Werner Fleischhauer.

The Idea:

Werner Fleischhauer found a material in the early 1950´s to replace raffia and developed it to a successful sealing for T-budding and grafting, called Okulette and later in the 1960´s Flexiband, rubber budding strips. The great part about Okulette and Flexiband is that it is Biodegradable.


The Fleischhauer OSV GmbH company, family owned, established in 1958. Manufacturer of natural rubber grafting and budding material. We are proud that we manufacture all our material ourselves at our factory in Ahrensburg-Germany.
