Chester Carlson, the inventor of xerography, has been inducted into the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame.

The man who revolutionised the ink cartridge industry in the 20th century for his process of plain paper copying was selected to join the exclusive club on October 6th. Mr Carlson patented the innovative copying concept in 1937 before forming a licensing agreement in 1947 with the Haloid Corporation, which later became Xerox.

It was in 1959 when the world's first plain paper copier, the Xerox 914, was launched onto the market. Fortune magazine stated that the 914 copier was "the most successful product ever marketed in America".

Meanwhile, Xerox recently released two new Digital Colour Presses designed to increase the monthly document productivity in various organisations. The firm claims its 770 and 700i printer ink products also take advantage of the company's Automated Colour Quality Suite to ensure image resolutions are of a consistently high standard.
