Xerox is an American company that makes and sells photocopiers and paper. It was the first brand of modern photocopiers.[1] The term xerox has become a generic trademark. This means people often use 'xerox' to mean any copy machine, and "xeroxing" to mean photocopying.[2] The company was founder in 1906. Its headquarters is in Norwalk, Connecticut. Ursula Burns became the CEO and Chairwoman in 2009.
