Fuji Xerox Australia has declined to comment on reports that only four out of 50 staff members at its Fuji Xerox Printers (FXP) division have been offered jobs in the integration of the business into Fuji Xerox Australia.

Fuji Xerox Australia does not comment on employee related matters, the company said in a statement via emailFuji Xerox Australia remains committed to continuing sustainable relationships with our distributors and resellers.

The incorporation of Fuji Xerox Printers into Fuji Xerox Australia was revealed in February 2018 – the same week that Fujifilm Holdings outlined its plans to acquire Xerox Corp in a $US6.1 billion deal that is facing multiple legal challenges.

At the time, Fujifilm said that as part of its buyout of Xerox it planned to cut 10,000 jobs at Fuji Xerox in the Asia Pacific region by March 2020.

It was reported that the FXP offices at Frenchs Forest would be closed and personnel would be moved to the FXA office in Ryde.

According to IT industry news website ARNnet, local FXP staff were told that employees would be either offered a position at Fuji Xerox Australia or a redundancy, which would be effective as at the end of March. 

Of more than 50 Fuji Xerox Printers’ (FXP) staff in Australia, just four have been offered a full-time position. ARN understands that the vast majority of staff had no option but to be made redundant. Some have also found work in different parts of the industry.
