Xerox culls European distributors

Only three lucky survivors

Xerox has slashed its European distributors from 49 to just three.

Ingram Micro was the first to blow its trumpet as one of the lucky trio. But the copy vendor has said there may be local variations to this pan-european - or as we used to say in the trade, oligarchical - arrangement.

Other distributors may continue to sell its products, but will have to subdistribute from the master three.
