Over 30 years of experience speak for themselves.

Our success story

1980 - today

Development and operation of technology centres in the form of public-private partnership models. Long before the coining of the terms serviced offices and co-working space, we identified the increasing market need for serviced offices with value-added services, such as ICT infrastructure, facility management, reception- , telephony- and postal services.

2000 - 2015

Between 2000 and 2015 Bena established 10 business centres with over 30,000m2 of serviced office space in Austria and Serbia and was the market leader in both countries. 2015 we sold our business centre operations to Regus, the global market leader.

2010 - 2020

Since 2010 we have focused on the acquisition and operation of conveniently located commercial and logistic property for small and medium-sized enterprises. Today we own over 60,000m2 space in this sector.

The Bena Group is owner-managed. The four partners combine years of experience in property investment and development, as well as in management and finance sectors.
