Inside Fuji Xerox's Sydney eco-manufacturing plant
How a $22m investment reaped a $240m return.
Mar 16, 2012
Fuji Xerox today officially opened the doors of its Eco Manufacturing Centre in Rosehill. The company moved to the heritage-listed building in 2011 after ten years in a Zetland facility, following the expiration of a tenant agreement.
Senator and parliamentary secretary for sustainability and urban water, Don Farrell (right), joined Fuji Xerox Australia managing director Nick Kugenthiran to officially open the facility.
The facility employs over 75 staff who remanufacture and recycle products and parts returned by customers. Senator Farrell called Fuji Xerox a "world leader" in the recycling space. "It's not easy to make a shift, and what you're doing for the environment and the community is a wonderful thing."
The factory remanufactures around 140,000 parts annually.
Typical products come from returned Fuji Xerox printers and include toner parts, circuit boards, monitors, hole punch and stapler assemblies, and transfer belts.
Fuji Xerox provides remanufactured products to overseas clients as well as Australia. Japan is its biggest customer, for anything from power supplies to components.
The large factory includes a warehouse, engineering lab, test lab and production area.
The company is currently working towards a five start green rating. It has so far installed carpet with recyclable components; lighting motion sensors which turn off when no movement is detected; air conditioning which uses carbon dioxide to detect the existence of people in a room- turning on or off accordingly; solar hot water roof panels; and energy monitoring meters, among others.
