    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.
