The brand name ‘xerox’ is based on the xerographic process for printing images which was invented by Chester Carlson, an American physicist, in 1938. Nearly 20 years later Joseph C. Wilson, the founder of xerox, commercialised Carlson’s invention using a document feeder, scanning light, and a rotating drum to create a printing process for images. For this reason, they claim to have ‘invented office printing more than 75 years ago.
Jump to today and ‘to xerox’ something has become almost synonymous with the verb ‘to copy’. They manufacture both monochrome and colour multi-functional printers including laser ink, solid ink and LED. The product range is one of the widest on the market with models to suit every kind of business.
