Xerox selects Webster for toner plant expansion
Webster, N.Y.- Xerox has picked Webster for its toner plant expansion.
The company said this project means an additional $35 million investment.
“As a global manufacturer of toner, we considered options around the world, but tax abatement incentives from the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency and a grant from Empire State Development contributed to making Webster the most cost effective location to build additional manufacturing capacity,” said Richard Schmachtenberg, senior vice president, Consumables Development and Manufacturing for Xerox.
Xerox will build two additions to its Webster plant, increasing the size from 100,000 square-feet to 155,000 square-feet. It will also add about $26 million in EA toner manufacturing equipment.
The expansion will start this month and is expected to be complete in February 2015.
The company said the additional manufacturing line will create about 25 new jobs over time, consisting of process operators, quality control, lab personnel and additional maintenance staff.
The current five-story plant, which opened in 2007, is one of only a handful of its kind in the world.
