As many of Xerox's photocopiers are leased to businesses, Xerox made the business decision to design their products for disassembly so that they can be easily repaired, and upgraded when the leased product is returned to them.
Xerox integrated the principles of designing for disassembly early in the design stage when decisions regarding which components to group together were made.
Xerox remanufacture components from their leased photocopiers at the end of their servicable life
