Kong Wan Sing, founder and CEO of JustCo, said that “Over the recent years, co-working space business around the world has seen a significant growth. Co-working space goes beyond the physical space and facilities as it has become a symbol of community, connectivity, efficiency, and networking. Currently, JustCo is Southeast Asia's largest and most successful premium provider of co-working spaces. We are not just a space provider. What sets us apart from other co-working spaces is our large community where members can tap into to seek new connections and explore new business opportunities. JustCo also has a strong network of long-term partners where members can leverage to access to regional markets, gain business insights, or enjoy preferential packages for business services.”
“We are so delighted to announce our first JustCo centre in Thailand. Our partnership with Sansiri, a key player in Thailand real estate sector, is instrumental in helping pave the way for our accelerated growth in Thailand and Asia, through Sansiri’s in-depth expertise and experience in Asian markets and also connect JustCo to a large number of Sansiri residents.
Thailand is one of the key business hubs in the region and its favorable geographical location coupled with infrastructure readiness make the country a key market for JustCo, as well as gateway to our regional expansion across Southeast Asia markets. We are here to create a powerful ecosystem where working individuals and businesses of all sizes can harness the benefits of the network effect through meaningful interactions, participation and partnerships among members at JustCo to bring many new opportunities and great success,” added Kong.

As we all know, the nature of work today has expanded beyond traditional office. The shifting economy has also sparked huge growth in start-up ventures and entrepreneurship, creating demand for new kinds of flexible, collaborative workspaces. Moreover, co-working is already catching on among large companies as they are seeking ways to energise and enhance work capabilities of their staff by adopting creative and collaborative ambiance. Therefore, the arrival of JustCo is just in time to capture the potential growth of co-working space phenomenon in Thailand.
We foresee that JustCo is our strategic partner not only as a co-working space provider but also a trusted alliance to create new spaces for Sansiri’s residences and partners in the near future. The partnership also works towards the sharing of resources, know-how, technology and customer base. This also benefits Sansiri’s customers and residents by offering them a new, unique privileged access to JustCo’s co-working space network.”
