Baltimore, MD – (Jun 4, 2012) – Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, has strengthened its presence in Maryland with the opening of two new suburban business centers in an effort to meet the increasing demand from area businesses for a more efficient and flexible working environment.
