Strong Demand For Flexibility Prompts Regus to Expand in Portland Area
Workplace provider opens in sixth Oregon location as flexible working increases in popularity
Portland, OR – (May 8, 2012) – Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, has expanded its presence in the Portland area with its first full service business center located at 1915 NW AmberGlen, as demand for flexible working rises in the market.
According to Hillsboro Mayor Jerry Willey, “In today’s global marketplace, business needs alternatives to traditional office space. Regus fills the niche of providing flexible, professional meeting space in order to conduct business in an efficient way. We are delighted they have chosen Hillsboro to expand their regional presence.”
The new Regus center is strategically located to put businesses within close proximity to both the Nike and Intel campuses. Businesses looking to partner with these multinationals can now have an immediate presence in a professional space.
“We’re finding businesses of all sizes are increasingly looking to shorten their commute time for their employees and this location offers professional space outside of Portland,” said Sande Golgart, Regus’ Regional Vice President. “The wide arrange of customers that have signed on to this location shows how flexible working can benefit any industry by reducing costs, improving productivity and minimizing risk.”
From hazelnuts to computer chips, Washington County remains Oregon’s economic growth engine and is attracting investors from across the globe in an effort to increase their customer base and decrease their dependence on one particular market.
Right in the heart of the Silicon Forest, 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.
“Being flexible gives any organization the best chance for success,” added Golgart. “It makes good business people great because they are prepared to take on anything coming their way.”
Notes to Editors:
Hillsboro Mayor Jerry Willey will attend the grand opening of the center on June 22. Members of the media are invited to attend and take a tour of the new facility. Interviews with Regus spokespersons and clients are available upon request.
