August 1985: Xerox announces the Xerox 1040.
The Xerox 1040 copier was a compact unit whose options included automatic document feeder, reduction-enlargement and sorter. The 1040 could make up tp 35 copies in a minute.
In Europe the Xerox 1040 was designed in the UK, and manufactured 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.
