The American manufacturer of printers and related products Xerox is cutting 150 jobs at the plant in Venray, in the southern Dutch province of Limburg. It has informed its employees that the photo receptor department and the department manufacturing toners will be moved abroad, although it has not yet been specified where. The move should be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2017. It is as of yet unclear how exactly the dismissals will be realised and whether any other departments, such as logistics, will be affected.

Updated, 9/12/2016: On 24 November 2016 Xerox confirmed reports in the local media that fewer jobs will be lost than initially announced. Because of a change of plans, not all production departments will be closed in Venray, necessitating fewer job cuts. The number of jobs to be cut will now be limited to 50 to 55 jobs.
