March 1984: Xerox announces the Xerox 1048 copier.
The Xerox 1048 could make two-sided copies at up to 40 copies a minute. In Europe the 1048 copier was manufactured at Venray in the Netherlands.
The 10 series represented a new generation of copiers. This became the most successful line of copiers in Xerox history and served to restore the company's finances and morale. The flagship Xerox 1075 became the first American-made product to win Japan's Grand Prize for Good Design. Altogether, 14 models were introduced between 1982 and 1986, six of which were still sold in 1990.
