Fuji Xerox

Fuji Xerox delivers market leading document services and print solutions to the New Zealand market place. Our core philosophy is to be ‘strong’, ‘kind’ and ‘interesting’. A ‘strong’ company that delivers excellent products and services that satisfy customers, and is able to reward its shareholders continuously; a ‘kind’ company that contributes to local and global communities with a particular focus around young people; and an ‘interesting’ company at which employees find their life and work fulfilling. We aim to be a company with a good balance of all three attributes whilst helping New Zealand schools to grow and transform by providing scalable, cost effective printing and document management solutions.
