    XEROX restructuring, but committed to Rochester
    Top
    officials at XEROX hosted Rochester leaders Monday night to talk about
    the company’s commitment to the area. During tough economic times, CEO
    Anne Mulcahy says XEROX has been able to maintain moderate growth but
    admitted restructuring and layoffs are possible.She said, “Rochester
    continues to be a place that’s attractive to XEROX to have its largest
    concentration of people and where we can invest in our toner plant and
    facilities.”

    Mulcahy and president Ursula Burns say they are
    working on a company wide restructuring plan, which could involve
    layoffs. They’re quick to say any cuts here in Rochester would be
    proportionate to cuts made at other areas of operation.Mulcahy said
    there are a few main reasons why she will continue to carry a large
    part of the work force here. She said, “Part of it’s the history. I
    would say we have roots. We have 7,600 people, very talented people
    that call this home and love it. And quite frankly, we can’t blow them
    out of here, in terms of their desire to remain in the greater
    Rochester area,’ said Mulcahy.Last September, XEROX opened a toner
    manufacturing plant at the Webster campus. The president says it was
    not about staying in Rochester, but what was right for the company. 
    Burns said because of incentives from the county and state, they built
    here. She said, “We do business a lot of different places, employ
    people from a lot of different places and so we try to take into
    account the hard facts and not the nationalistic facts.”

    XEROX
    leaders met with area leaders like Assemblyman Joe Morelle Monday
    night. He sees XEROX as a success story but believes New York has some
    work to do to become more business friendly.Morelle said, “We have to
    be mindful. Our cost structure is still too high and we’ve got to work
    on that as a state and region.”Anne Mucahy had advice for businesses
    struggling here in Rochester. She said, stay focused on your people,
    continue to invest in innovation, and listen to your customers.XEROX
    has 7,600 employees in the Rochester area. That is more than all the
    other US job sites combined.
