Regus supports local and international business in Port Elizabeth
On November 1st Regus opens its first business centre in Port Elizabeth, in the Eastern Cape. It brings the number of Regus business centres in South Africa to 13.
The launch means local and international businesses and mobile workers have access for the first time to flexible Regus workspace in this major seaport. They can use it to grow a local business, work better on the move, or establish a presence in Port Elizabeth – using physical workspace or a virtual office here.
Joanne Bushell, CEO Regus South Africa comments: “Regus is creating new business avenues in Port Elizabeth for companies of all sizes. They can work closer to contacts or customers in the automotive or shipping industries; explore opportunities in the Industrial Development Zone; or move to pay-as-you-use office space, all without locking themselves into inflexible premises deals.
“In short, the flexibility and versatility of the Regus workspace in Port Elizabeth offers companies a more effective way to operate – opening up opportunities whilst closing down the risk involved in long-term financial arrangements.”
Expanding the network of business centres in South Africa is part of Regus’s rapid expansion across Africa. Regus has seen 40% year-on-year growth in demand across the continent, and is opening centres in new and existing countries to meet that demand. Recent openings over the past 12 months include centres in Zambia, Madagascar and Rwanda.
Joanne Bushell continues: “Over the next five years, Regus plans to double its network in Africa. Just as we already do in South Africa and 15 other countries in Africa, we will support businesses of all sizes and across all sectors, local and international – helping them grow, cut risk, work more productively, and explore new markets.”
