Regus provides flexible workspaces at some 3,000 locations in 120 countries, and an educated workforce is a prime attraction in determining where the Luxembourg-based company decides to set up shop.

How often should my a garage door be serviced?
Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.
