Xerox Awarded Air Force Contract for Global Office Equipment and Services Deal
ROCHESTER, N.Y.- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has won a five-year blanket purchase agreement on an estimated $400 million U.S. Air Force contract for the placement of Xerox multifunction printers, network copiers and supplies.
Xerox will provide technology and services to help the Air Force reduce expenses, consolidate equipment and achieve global standards in its document management operations.
“Winning this eligibility is a highly competitive process and Xerox is well positioned to meet head-on the Air Force’s cost savings initiative,” said Greg Jones, senior vice president, Public Sector Operations, Xerox Corporation. “Our global document outsourcing capabilities, digital print technology and professional consulting services have successfully helped enterprises achieve top-line quality and bottom-line productivity savings - we can do the same for the U.S. Armed Forces.”
Under the agreement the Air Force selects from Xerox’s award-winning line of office printers, copiers and multifunction printers, which print, copy, scan and fax. These products include a variety of security features that protect confidential information. The Air Force will also take advantage of Xerox’s cartridge-free solid ink devices - which deliver outstanding color quality, are easy to use, and produce far less waste than traditional laser printers.
Xerox Global Services will deploy its capabilities around the world to oversee equipment orders, delivery requirements, customer support, billing and fleet maintenance.
Last year, Xerox was awarded a U.S. Navy contract worth $93 million for the onboard document needs of its 283 vessels. A long-standing customer of Xerox, the Navy depends on Xerox for installation, custom mounting, training, supplies and dedicated service worldwide on nearly 3,000 multifunction and production devices, as well as printer software.
