Fuji Xerox Lays Off Staff in New Zealand

Fuji Xerox Lays Off Staff in New Zealand rtmworldPrint company Fuji Xerox has told its staff it plans to cut about 100 jobs after its printing volumes dropped 85 per cent as a result of COVID-19.

The job cuts will be made across the New Zealand operation and its newly acquired business CSG.

Managing director Peter Thomas said he did not expect printing volumes to recover to pre-COVID levels and the decision was made to strengthen the business for the future.

According to separate industry analyst groups IDC, Quocorca and Actionable Intelligence, print demand is significantly down as many people are having to work from home. The new normal may see a permanent reduction in office printing.

“This is a difficult and stressful time for all our staff. We will be providing those directly affected by the proposal with additional support throughout this process,” he said.
