Regus Opens its First Business Center in Tacoma

TACOMA, Wash. - (Nov. 27, 2012) – Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, today announced the opening of its first full service business center in the heart of Tacoma’s business district at 1201 Pacific Avenue, giving local and international companies the opportunity grow in a secure and flexible environment.

Regus, which operates more than 500 locations throughout the U.S., continues to invest and expand into new cities as the efficiencies of flexible space stimulate demand. Businesses of all sizes can access office space at a prime location without the hassle of an exhaustive search and locking into a long-term lease. The flexibility offered in Regus’ model helps businesses enter new markets and eliminates the costs of traditional property overheads.

A primary gateway port for international trade, Tacoma has taken steps to diversify its economy and revitalize its downtown area over the past several years. Government contracts, technology and professional services are luring new companies to the city.

“Underpinning our growth here in the Pacific Northwest and globally is the fact that organizations – from start-ups to Fortune 500s – are incorporating flexible working into their business strategy,” explained Sande Golgart, Regional Vice President, Regus. “Companies who adapt a flexible work strategy have experienced a number of benefits – from improving work-life balance, to shorter commutes and from quick market entrance to scalability, more businesses are opting for flexible working every day.”

Regus provides its customers with a range of options, including fully equipped offices and virtual offices as well as meeting rooms and business lounges. Terms are flexible allowing clients to choose the amount of space they use and the length of time they stay.

“Interest in our downtown location is strong,” added Golgart. Given our success in Seattle and Bellevue, our expansion into Tacoma gives our customers another location to choose from in the area.”
