Speaking at the launch of Regus One Welches Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, Hon. Christopher Sinckler stated, “It is great to see this Regus Business Centre up and running in Barbados. Having a world-class business facility of this kind will help elevate Barbados’ business profile as a small but premier global and regional business domicile. Not only will it benefit local, regional and global businesses in Barbados, but it will facilitate increased economic activity in the country.”
Chairman of Williams Offices Ralph ‘Bizzy’ Williams said, “We are delighted to be able to bring the world-class Regus products and services to Barbados and look forward to opening additional centres not only in Barbados but across the region thereby expanding the Williams footprint across the Caribbean.”
Mark Linehan, Managing Director, of the Regus franchise in the territory added, ‘We are very excited about opening the first Regus Business Centre in Barbados. We have created a world-class working environment where businesses large and small can come and use our cutting edge work practices.
“Interest has been very high to date and with clients using the centre from day one the signs are very positive. Our clients are enjoying our fully equipped office centre which is meeting all their needs. And with our introductory offer we have a number of live prospects that are due to take office space over the coming days and weeks. Our aim with Regus is to provide businesses with an environment that allows them focus on what they do best. We look after the rest.”
Regus has launched with ‘All Inclusive’ pricing whereby clients pay one monthly fee making life easier for its clients and with an introductory offer of three extra months free on agreements of six months or more the Regus Centre should soon start filling up.
With 46 offices of varying sizes, 135 work stations, three meeting rooms including a boardroom and a business lounge, the centre will be a great addition to the growing business hub of the wider Warrens area. Fitted out with world-class IT and Telecoms infrastructure the centre is designed to support the needs of all its clients.
The centre will also offer ‘virtual offices’, which provide companies a prestigious address, as well as call answering services and mail forwarding, even if they are based elsewhere.
Local businesses can use the Regus workspaces to project a more ambitious image to national and international customers. The centre also connects them to a global business network which they can use to develop their export business and make new contacts abroad.
Regus, the global leader of flexible working spaces has partnered with Williams Offices (Caribbean) Ltd, a company set up by Ralph ‘Bizzy’ Williams, Chairman of Williams Industries Inc. and Mark Linehan, former CEO of Digicel (Barbados) Limited to bring the Regus franchise to the region.
