Auckland, 22 September – New Zealand technology and telecommunications company, Argent Networks today announced the opening of their new Regional Support and Centre of Excellence office in Beirut, Lebanon.

Chris Jones, CEO and President of Argent, says the opening of the Beirut office at an official ceremony is a very exciting and special moment.

“Argent has signed new clients in the region, and we expect ongoing demand for our services over the coming year.”

"The opening of Argent’s Beirut office also reflects our recent success and continued commitment to the Middle-Eastern market. The decision to extend Argent’s network in this region is consistent with our plans for growth, and the desire to be closer and more hands-on to the markets that we serve,” says Jones.
