Milestones

Xerox has been in South Africa since 1964 and has a proud tradition of pioneering research and continues to be in the forefront of innovation. Chester Carlson’s invention of xerography more than 70 years ago was an extraordinary milestone in the development of the modern information age, as now individuals could much more easily share and access information.

Xerox has a rich history of innovation. As the inventors of Ethernet over 30 years ago, we helped build the foundation for today’s Internet. In fact, not known to many, the Ethernet’s first commercialization was as a communication bus in our production publishing systems in the early 1990s.
