The Xerox 914 is the first office copier for sale
The Xerox 914, the first automatic, plain-paper office copier, is announced.
Xerox was founded in 1906 in Rochester as "The Haloid Company", which originally manufactured photographic paper and equipment. The company subsequently changed its name to "Haloid Xerox" in 1958 and then simply "Xerox" in 1961.
The company came to prominence in 1959 with the introduction of the Xerox 914, the first plain paper photocopier using the process of xerography developed by Chester Carlson. The 914 was so popular that by the end of 1961, Xerox had almost $60 million in revenue.
