Increasing demand for flexible workspace takes Regus network past the 1,500 mark

Pune, March 25, 2013: Regus continues to lead the global flexible and mobile working trend with the opening of its 1,500th business centre worldwide, in Pune, India. The availability of Regus flexible workspace in one of India’s leading IT corridors will help businesses of all sizes to open up new revenues or work more efficiently in the region.

As the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, Regus continues to expand its network across the world, with a footprint now covering some 600 cities and 99 countries. Regus is on track to achieve a network of at least 2,000 business centres globally by 2014.

Mark Dixon, CEO of Regus, commented “It is entirely appropriate that the 1,500th Regus centre is in India, because it’s a key growth market for Regus and our customers. With its strong economy and growing demand for flexible working, there is huge potential to develop our network in India to support the growth of local and international companies.”

Pune is a thriving centre for both automotive and IT companies. Known as India’s Motor City, it has a growing roster of global car manufacturers and parts suppliers, including Tata, Mercedes Benz and Jaguar Land Rover. The IT sector is also booming, and the latest Regus centre in the city is located at one of India’s most sought-after IT hubs, in Baner.

Dixon continues: “As ever, Regus is going to the locations that matter to companies and staff. Not just the high-profile Indian cities like Mumbai, but the other places where local and international businesses are congregating – Pune is a perfect example. Our presence in these locations helps businesses to grow their footprint, improve their efficiency, recruit talent, and work productively. We’re delighted to support businesses in Pune’s IT corridor, and we’ll be delighted to support businesses at many other new locations in 2013. Any place where businesses can grow or work better through flexible workspace, Regus will be there.”
