Xerox to move some operations from China to Canandaigua

The state on Thursday announced a partnership between Xerox Corp. and the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center to relocate high-tech manufacturing operations from China to the center in Canandaigua.

The state is investing $750,000 to support the partnership, which will create and retain up to 100 high-tech jobs over the next five years, officials said.

“As a global company, we manufacture around the world and have made the decision to bring this optics assembly project to New York where we can invest locally for key scanning technology requirements,” said Lee Nunziato, Xerox technology procurement manager, in a statement. “By participating in this public-private sector partnership, we are developing competitive solutions for the marketplace.”

Center officials said the collaboration marks another significant step forward in the growth of Canandaigua facility.

Through the partnership, Xerox has committed to relocate capital equipment used in the manufacture of advanced document scanning technologies from China to a 3,300-square-foot cleanroom to the facility in Canandaigua, state officials said. Additionally, Xerox is negotiating a five-year contract agreement with facility officials to purchase optical scanners once the production line is successfully transferred to the site.

The Canandaigua facility is home to advanced micro electromechanical systems fabrication and packaging capabilities for use in sensor-based, system-on-a-chip and computer chip applications.
