In the United States, Xerox corporation owns some 1,700 acres of land. The 1,OOO-acre Webster complex outside Rochester, New York, is the largest single holding. Other large real estate holdings are in California, where Xerox own approximately 450 acres. Included in the nearly 400 buildings we occupy in the United States are a million square feet of manufacturing space and three modern research facilities in Webster, a 30-story office building in Rochester and a temporary corporate headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.

Two major buildings, with a combined cost estimated at over $20 million, are currently under construction in Webster, New York, the principal manufacturing, engineering and research center of our Business Products Group. The larger addition will be a 750,OOO-square-foot machine-manufacturing building. It will provide a significant increase in manufacturing space and eventual employment for 2,500 people. The second addition will provide much needed warehous'e space. In addition, construction is under way on a new building which will house our centralized computer operations. Expanded research and development facilities are also in progress.
