Regus, the multinational workplace provider, opened their most recent business centre in the Kwa-Zulu Natal capital, Pietermaritzburg on 1 December 2017. This adds to their 3000 locations worldwide and over 55 locally. The new Pietermaritzburg centre which offers fully furnished office spaces, co-working spaces, and meeting rooms, follows a strategic focus to provide world-class workspaces and infrastructure in oft-forgotten areas.
Since its expansion into South Africa, Regus has provided co-working and meeting spaces to meet the increasing demand for flexible, technologically advanced, professional work areas. The latest centre will support corporates, small businesses, start-ups, entrepreneurs, students, freelancers and business tourists with a professional place to work and network.
As a hub to the aluminium, agricultural, manufacturing and tourism sectors, and with its proximity to Durban, one of the busiest ports in Africa, Pietermaritzburg is also an ideal platform for expansion into the rest of the province.
The location is home to the thriving and active Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business, supporting local businesses in the area. The new business centre is also ideally situated in the busy Bird Sanctuary area, with access to banks, local businesses, restaurants and food outlets.
Joanne Bushell, Country Manager of Regus in South Africa said of the expansion, “The most recent Regus locations were strategically chosen to support areas in our country integral to the agricultural, manufacturing and services growth, but which often don’t have commensurate support of much-needed technological infrastructure and services. We have seen our business centres boost economic growth in all the locations where we put down our footprint.”
With more centres set to open in South Africa in 2018, Regus’ business support footprint is steadily growing to include centres nationwide.
