Clayton, MO - (April 2, 2012) – As one of the best places to live and work in Missouri, Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, has invested in this thriving St. Louis suburb and today announced the opening of its first full service business center in Clayton located at 7733 Forsyth Boulevard.
“The Regus business model satisfies a growing need for flexible work environments in the office market,” said Clayton’s Mayor Linda Goldstein. “We are delighted that Regus has chosen Clayton for the site of its first full service business center.”
“Regus has wanted to be in Clayton for some time,” said Jeff Doughman, regional vice president, Regus. “The right opportunity presented itself and we, along with our clients, are very excited to be here.”
Fueling Regus’ expanding U.S. footprint is its entry into suburban markets that are home to large corporations. Regus’ presence in Clayton provides businesses with a professional environment within minutes of where they live, thereby reducing commute times and improving work-life balance.
The center features offices, virtual offices, meeting rooms, videoconferencing and an administrative staff to ease the workload and let businesses focus on the task at hand. Regus’ global footprint and scalability allows companies to enter new markets and expand without being locked into long-term, expensive fixed leases.
“Our U.S. expansion into new markets like Clayton is being driven by a shift in how businesses are working. Increasingly, from start-ups to Fortune 500s, companies want more flexibility. In turn, they are more nimble, less exposed to financial risks and can test new markets as business conditions dictate,” said Doughman.
Interest in the space has covered a cross section of businesses and Regus expects the center to house a mix of small business owners as well as multinationals who want to enter the Clayton market quickly.
With the opening of this center, Regus now has four locations in the St. Louis area and three facilities in Kansas City.
Regus is the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, with products and services ranging from fully equipped offices to professional meeting rooms, business lounges and the world’s largest network of video communication studios. Regus enables people to work their way, whether it’s from home, on the road or from an office. Customers such as Google, GlaxoSmithKline, and Nokia join hundreds of thousands of growing small and medium businesses that benefit from outsourcing their office and workplace needs to Regus, allowing them to focus on their core activities.
Over a million customers a day benefit from Regus facilities spread across a global footprint of 1,300 locations in 550 cities and 99 countries, which allow individuals and companies to work wherever, however and whenever they want to. Regus was founded in Brussels, Belgium in 1989, is headquartered in Luxembourg and listed on the London Stock Exchange. For more information please visit: www.regus.com
