New York’s Flex Space Player Industrious Looking to Expand Overseas, Asia and Europe

Industrious, the New York flexible work space company, is looking to expand internationally, announcing two international acquisitions: The Great Room in Asia and Welkin & Meracki in Continental Europe. 

The deals will immediately add six new countries to Industrious’ portfolio across key European and Asia-Pacific markets – Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, France, Belgium, and The Netherlands – comprising approximately 1,000,000 SF of current and pipeline locations.

The deals will allow Industrious to better capture the growing global demand for experience-driven, flexible space from occupiers of all sizes. Motivated by employee demand for greater work flexibility, companies are increasingly leveraging workplace-as-a-service platforms to best support and engage hybrid and distributed teams.“We are thrilled to bring on The Great Room and Welkin & Meraki within the Industrious ecosystem,” said Jamie Hodari, CEO and co-Founder at Industrious. “We look forward to expanding our offering on a global scale to best support emerging work models, while keeping our commitment to the highest customer satisfaction in the industry.”
