Nanocollege celebrates Xerox job move
Canandaigua, N.Y. There has been nothing nano about the burgeoning SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Canandaigua.
A few days ago, the college announced Dynamax Imaging is creating 50 high-tech jobs at its center.
Thursday, another announcement: Xerox will move around 100 jobs from China to the center in Ontario County over the next few years.
The hires will work on advanced document scanning.
Having them come back to this site has them put the optical scanning team in close proximity to the design and development group in Webster, said Paul Tolley, a vice president at the college.
New York State chipped in $750,000 to make this move possible.
Tolley calls that a wise use of taxpayer dollars.
Its a public-private partnership, we as a state are investing in infrastructure that will draw in many millions of dollars in capital, equipment and expenditure that will be invested in this site, Tolley said.
