Xerox to demolish two buildings

Xerox Corp. will demolish two buildings at its Webster campus, the document company announced in an internal memo Thursday.
Wim Appelo, vice president of paper, supplies and supply chain operations, states in a memo he sent to Xerox employees in Monroe County that two buildings in Webster will be demolished as a way to increase efficiency. The buildings are not needed now that the firm no longer holds large quantities of parts or equipment as on-site inventory.
Both buildings—which total nearly 114,000 square feet and served as warehouse facilities—are vacant.
“The opportunity then exists to remove some of the idle buildings, allowing us to capture the benefits of reduced maintenance and utility costs,” Appelo wrote in the memo, provided to the Rochester Business Journal.
Appelo added Xerox has made significant infrastructure and building investments in Webster over the last several years, including the iGen3 manufacturing facility, Gil Hatch Center for Customer Innovation and EA toner facility.
The demolition work will be done by LVI Environmental Services Inc., a New York City firm that has a local office.
The Xerox campus in Webster consists of 47 buildings totaling 5.5 million square feet on 1,100 acres.
