Industrious’ Acquisition of Welkin & Meraki

Osborne Clarke and Ogier advised Industrious on the deal.

Industrious, the highest-rated flexible workplace company, acquired 100% of the share capital and voting rights of its European counterpart, Welkin & Meraki. 

Welkin & Meraki delivers premium workplaces designed to be flagship headquarters, bases for parent companies or satellite office spaces. 

Industrious is now one of the largest flexible workplace companies having a strong presence in 50+ markets across the US and the UK. The acquisition of Welkin & Meraki will immediately launch Industrious across 3 international markets and better position the company to capture the growing demand for experience-driven, flexible space. Industrious has set plans to further expand in Continental Europe in the near term.
