loft-style open spaces
Staffed Office or Showroom in France:
The DewaFlex offices are located in an old factory (‘bonneterie’) with very typical loft-style open spaces. The site is very close to the Belgian border (area of Gent, Kortrijk, Tournai) in front of the mythical vélodrome of Roubaix (the iconic arrival of the famous cycling race Paris-Roubaix).
Also perfectly reachable by public transport and a stone’s throw from lille in the North of France.
The building is equipped with all modern safety regulations, (closed secure parking etc.) and personal comfort (air conditioning etc.)…
> Our way of working:
DewaFlex has the possibility to adapt the spaces in the building in a very flexible manner. As such, we can easily meet our customers’ needs.
Some examples of the possibilities:
- Own French staffed office (with DewaFlex employees),
- Furnished to your own needs,
- With or without an “active secretariat” (active secretariat = answering the phone, post transfer, opening the entrance door during office hours, etc..)
- Flex offices (renting possible for a few hours only or for a longer time period),
- Open space office of about 300m² (for example for bootcamps for schools),
- A (manned) showroom,

our customers speak
Some practical examples:
Client: Gymna / Belgian company wanted to create a French entity "Gymna France".
CEO: Bart de Bresser
Company was looking for a good location for a showroom in order to have a closer “French” contact with the distributors in the French territory.
Actions for the client:
The company decided to have the showroom at the DewaFlex facilities because there is also an openspace where demonstrations can be done during the weekend.
The advantage is that the showroom is staffed by a French employee, Nadia, who is very satisfied because she has French colleagues and also an active secretariat. When she is not in the office, there is always somebody to pick-up the phone.
After a few months the showroom was too small and DewaFlex reacted in a very flexible way and we enlarged the space double the size without complicated contracts etc.
Client: Belgian company wanted to hire an experienced sales person but changed their mind.
CEO: Kris Decraene

Actions for the client:
The customer has the target to enlarge their French business in the future by having a bigger set-up in the Dunkirk area but decided to do a step in between via DewaFlex and is renting with via a very flexible rental contract an office and storage room.
