In 1976 the entrepreneurial Mr. Alf Moufarrige was about to embark on a new venture.
First, he required an office space, receptionist then secretarial support. Soon he realised these costs were eating into his profits and the team and space were not used 100%, so he looked to share these to reduce his overheads.
In 1978 from a corner office in the MLC Centre Sydney Australia Mr. Alf Moufarrige took a piece a chalk to divide up the space - and Servcorp was born! The idea took hold and evolved organically and in just 12 months, a full 2 floors within the MLC Centre were occupied along with 1 location in Melbourne.
Growth steadily continued, pioneering the Virtual Office concept in 1980 and expansion into other countries and Servcorp was publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (SRV) in 1999.
Today the entrepreneurial spirit and passion of Mr. Alf Moufarrige has spearheaded Servcorp into offering Serviced Offices, Virtual Offices, Coworking and IT Solutions in 150 locations across 52 cities throughout 21 countries.
Simple ideas can lead on to big things. Where will your next big idea come from? We bet you will never look at a piece of chalk the same way again!

Supporting the environment
Taking our responsibility to the environment seriously we continue to support the Green Offices project organisation which helps to reduce our impact on the environment. Through our partnership with Greenfleet, a tree is planted for Virtual Office sold online and so far the 'Servcorp forests' covers more than 100,000 square metres of regional land and is made up of more than 26,600 trees.

Giving back to the community
We love nothing more to give back to the community and share our success with others. Servcorp have been in support of organisations long term such as YoungCare, and individual Servcorp locations are often involved in various local charitable and fundraising or awareness activities. Read more.
In the 2015 financial year ten new floors were opened and six floors were expanded. This was historically Servcorp’s biggest year for office expansion, with a net of 645 offices being added.
A further six floors opening globally in the 2016 financial year include CapitaGreen in Singapore, World Trade Center in Abu Dhabi, Park Building in Tehran, and the Ilham Tower in Kuala Lumpur.
Exciting news on home soil is Servcorp's first site in North Wollongong New South Wales based at the exciting Innovation Campus, University of Wollongong. Also set to open later in 2016 is the greatly anticipated new Barangaroo precinct within Sydney's CBD. Servcorp will be proud to be based high up on Level 35 of International Tower 1 within this prestigious new development.
The US is a key market which we will continue to invest time and effort in education about our premium offering with the recently opened One World Trade Centre with its premium Coworking space proving very popular.
Servcorp will continue to look for premium opportunities across the 21 countries in which we work. It is also a possibility that we may add two new geographic locations.
Further entrenchment of the Servcorp Virtual Office message amongst the small business and entrepreneur community across all countries will also be ongoing criteria to growth.
