Xerox Sells Product Design, Engineering Department

(Publish2.com partner.) — Xerox announced that it will sell its Wilsonville-based facility for more than $32 million.

Xerox is selling the product design, engineering and chemistry department to its long-time partner 3-D Systems.

It makes 3-D printers, on which users custom-make parts out of everything from plastic to ceramics.

The deal calls for about 100 Xerox engineers, designers and contractors to join 3-D System's research and development arm.

Those workers are expected to remain at the Wilsonville site. 3-D's press release says the company expects to increase R&D spending by up to 100 percent over the next few years.

Connecticut-based Xerox has about 3,000 employees in Oregon. But recently it has closed call centers in North Bend and Coos Bay with a loss of about 300 jobs.

The deal is expected to be finalized by January.
