Xerox Corporation
Celebrates 100th Anniversary
1906 - 2006

Chester Carlson was born in Seattle on February 8, 1906, the same year that the Haloid Company was founded in Rochester. No one could foresee the future - nor would one have ever foreseen the two meeting: a one-time poor research engineer and patent attorney who was considered by some to be a mad-scientist-type inventor and this small Rochester based manufacturing company that sold photographic paper. It took Carlson 15 years to establish the basic principles of electrophotography and he patented his developments every step along the way. He filed his first preliminary patent application on October 18, 1937.

On October 22, 1938 he and his assistant Otto Kornei had their historic breakthrough. Kornei wrote the words "10.-22.-38 ASTORIA" in India ink on a glass microscope. He prepared a zinc plate with a sulphur coating, darkened the room, rubbed the sulphur surface with a handkerchief to apply an electrostatic charge, and then laid the slide on the zinc plate, exposing it to a bright, incandescent light. They removed the slide, sprinkled lycopodium powder to the sulphur surface, softly blew the excess away, and transferred the image to a sheet of wax paper. They heated the paper, melting off the wax, and had their first near perfect duplicate. After repeating the experiment several times, they celebrated by going out to lunch.

However, years of work and disappointment followed, and years of trying to convince organizations like General Electric, IBM, RCA and the Army Signal Corps to invest in the invention. No one was interested.

In 1944 he finally struck a deal with Battelle Development Corporation, an Ohio-based non-profit organization dedicated to sponsoring new inventions. That was the turning point. Battelle soon got the Haloid Company to further develop the concept. Haloid named the process xerography, and coined the name XeroX (with a capital "X"). In 1961 Haloid changed its name to the Xerox Corporation.

On October 22, 1948, ten years to the day after that first microscope slide was copied, the Haloid Company made the first public announcement of xerography. They made their first sale of the Haloid Xerox Copier in 1950. The company continued to improve the concept producing the Xerox 914 in 1959. It was the first truly simple, push-button, plain-paper copier, and was so successful that it sold in only six months what the company had projected it would sell in the product's entire lifetime.

Carlson realized his early dream of financial success. He received about $150,000,000 from his invention, donated more than $100,000,000 to charitable causes before he passed away in 1968. In 1981 he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Over the years Xerox has provided countless offices and companies with every conceivable type of office equipment: printers, copiers, software, computer monitors, scanners, projectors and has provided customer support.

Xerox Corporation currently is building a toner plant on the company's 1,100-acre campus in Webster. Scheduled for completion in 2007, the facility will create more than 40 jobs and retain 50 jobs. The plant will produce emulsion aggregation toner, a chemically grown toner that uses less toner per page and produces sharper images than traditional toner.

Today the Xerox 914 is part of American history as an artifact in the Smithsonian Institution. Xerox is the proud winner to two Malcolm Baldridge Awards. The U.S. based operation won in 1989 and Xerox Business Services won in 1993. The US Chamber of Commerce Center for Corporate Citizenship granted Xerox the 2005 Corporate Citizenship Award in the U.S. Community Service category. Xerox quality principles and practices have been shared with many local organizations by way of their employees. Many live in Webster and are active in every area of Webster community activities. In addition, their fire department and hazardous material's teams provide back up to local volunteers.

Webster Volunteer Fire Department
Celebrates 100th Anniversary
1906 - 2006

Picture Webster Village 100 years ago - in early 1906. Imagine a group of 15 men walking through the snow or slush or riding horseback down the snowy dirt roads to the local veterinarian office of James E. Smith, on North Avenue. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss their concern for the village's lack of protection from fire.

Ultimately, a plan was in place and a fire department made up of volunteers was conceived. The group approached the Village Trustees with a petition of incorporation. In March 1906, the petition was signed, sealed and delivered and the Webster Volunteer Fire Department was born. Its duty was to protect and preserve lives and properties within the Village.

The first fire department building was on South Avenue, less than a mile from Dr. Smith's office. The first fire fighting apparatus was a hand-drawn squirrel-tail pumper, which took 16 to 20 men to operate. The pumper came by way of a horse-drawn sleigh-type contraption, from Williamson, Wayne County. (That pumper currently occupies a place of honor in a specially designed alcove with windows looking out on the street in the South Avenue Fire Hall.)

However, a terrible problem in firefighting at that time was the lack of a good water source. Water was available only from individual wells and cisterns.

In 1908 the Webster Flour Mill, a major local industry, located at 40 North Avenue burned to the ground. This fire was notable because it involved loss of a major industry, and because a Webster citizen lost his life.

Firemen, citizens and officials realized the powerlessness of a fire department that could not supply enough water to fight a fire of this proportion, thus a Village of Webster Water System was considered and as we know, constructed.

Since that time hundreds, maybe thousands of men have joined the Webster Fire Department and hundreds, maybe thousands of fires have been fought and lives and property saved.

Today's firefighters undergo intensive training. They respond not only to residential and industrial fires but also to injuries, sickness calls, and go anywhere where medical emergency care is needed.

Today's state of the art equipment includes a 140-foot aerial truck, which delivers 1500 gallons of water per minute.

For 100 years, Webster residents have answered the call to be a volunteer - to be of service to the community through the Webster Volunteer Fire Department. The volunteers have come from all walks of life but when they wear the uniform of a firefighter, they are brothers and sisters committed to a common purpose - to keep their community safe.

This year the Chamber and the community recognize them for their 100 years of service to the people of Webster and say thank-you.

Foley Agency
Celebrates 85th Anniversary
1921 - 2006

"We are big on commitment," said Tom Foley, current owner of Foley Insurance Agency, located on Main Street in the Village. The agency is celebrating its 85th anniversary having served a long list of loyal clients. "Many I've known all my life" said Tom and the agency is now serving younger generations of the same families. The agency remains committed to both their longtime customers and the new ones.

The Foley Agency was established by the late Harold K. Foley and is one of the village's oldest businesses dating back to 1921. It began on the second floor of their present location. When Tom's late father Harold purchased the building in 1941, the agency became more accessible and visible by moving to the first floor. Following Mr. Foley's premature death in 1949, his wife, Dorothea M. Foley, with children to support, learned the business and stepped in and carried on in the Foley tradition. The company continued serving the community by providing clients with appropriate property and casualty insurance to suit their needs.

In 1959 after serving in the Army, a time with Aetna Insurance and graduation from St. John Fisher College, Tom joined his mother at the firm. The tradition of service continued.

Dorothea worked at the Main Street office for about 40 years, retiring at age 80. She died in January 1994.

Tom takes great satisfaction in being a family-owned business. "We've made a commitment as a business and as a family, said Tom". "Dolores and I have been married for 50 years - that's commitment!"

In 1996 Brendan Hanna, their son-in-law, joined the firm. Also important to the success of Foley Insurance is their longtime CSR, Pat Seitz. Dolores has been the bookkeeper for many years and runs a tight ship in the finance dept.

A little history: Tom is a proud 50 year member of the Webster Fire Dept. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Chamber during the 1960s. His late father, Harold, served as Chamber President from 1935-1936.

West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association
Celebrates 80th Anniversary
1926 - 2006

The Department is a volunteer organization. Over the years the department has grown and was one of the first units in Monroe County to provide ambulance services. The number of calls for service has increased from 81 in 1958 to over 2100 in 2005. The volunteer membership has responded to that demand and today is proud to provide assistance for most calls in under five minutes.

In the early 1920's emergency help was provided with buckets hung along the porch railing at a store located at the four corners of West Webster. Disaster struck. In 1926 a stove exploded, burning the entire Shoemaker block. The Webster Fire Department arrived ten minutes after the alarm was received, however, by then significant damage was incurred. Several fire companies were called to battle the blaze. Over the course of the next year funds were sought to purchase a fire truck. On May 3, 1926 a group held its first meeting which was the begining of the West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association.

RD Specialties
Celebrates 70th Anniversary
1936 - 2006

Just past Xerox Corporation, on Salt Road in Webster, is another industry leader that got its start in Rochester's roots as a copying and imaging center. RD Specialties began making coating rods in 1936 at a time when Rochester had a modest reputation as the "carbon paper capital". The first coating rods were used for applying wax coatings to carbon paper. Today customers use them to make tapes, labels, laminations and window film, to name just a few.

The company began as a side business in the attic of the family home on Treyer Street in Rochester. It was started by a Polish immigrant who worked full-time for the Rochester Post Office during the company's first 20 years. With some early success, including its first $15 sale that was celebrated with Hostess Twinkies, RD Specialties found its new home in Webster. In 1996 the company remodeled the family homestead into office space and added another 6,000 square feet of manufacturing space. 1999 saw the acquisition of competitor H&W Metering Bar and both operations were combined at the Salt Road site.

Today, RD Specialties, owned by Doug Krasucki, outgoing Chamber President, is known throughout the industry for the quality of its products. The company is constantly working to surpass its own high standards of quality. Innovation, improvement and customer intimacy are driving RD Specialties into its eighth decade. Last year RD Specialties became a third generation business and the future looks bright for the next 70.

The Willard H. Scott Funeral Home
Celebrates 65th Anniversary
1941 - 2006

Few things in life are more important than choosing your life's work. Sometime people fall gracefully into a job they love and others never find it. How Bill Scott from the Willard H. Scott Funeral Home happened to become a funeral director is worthy of note.

It was customary at Red Creek High School for the school principal to sit down, discuss each graduating senior's plans with him, and offer advice.

The principal asked Bill Scott if he had ever considered becoming a funeral director. Perhaps, even in Bill's youth, she saw his calm demeanor, his concern and kindness towards others, the same traits she saw in her father, who himself was a funeral director.

Bill tucked the thought in the back of his mind, and joined the Army. He was raised on a farm in a family of 13 and college at that time was out of the question. He served in France during the Korean Conflict; and then, thanks to the GI Bill, he graduated from college. While working as an accountant for Burroughs and then Kodak, Bill picked up a book on funeral directing - went back to school, studied, became licensed, and the rest is history.

In 1951, he served his internship in Williamson. In 1958 he and his wife, Florence moved to Webster.

In 1964, they purchased the Tinklepaugh Funeral Home that had been established in 1941 by Ward and Carolyn Tinklepaugh. Nine years later the name was changed to the Willard H. Scott Funeral Home, reflecting the present owners. "I've never looked back," Bill said.

The Scott's raised three children and in 1990 the youngest, Jeff Scott, ended his forestry and land surveying career and returned to school for his license and joined his dad in the operation of the home. "I saw him behind the scenes," he said. "Dad never pushed," Jeff added.

In 1998, Jeff and his wife, the former Sharon Corretore, became the owners of the home. Three years ago, former Webster Police officer, Robert (Bob) Barton joined the Scotts, bringing another familiar face to the village's funeral home. Bob has been a wonderful compassionate addition, Jeff added. Each is happy to work so intimately with people.

Like old time doctors, Bill, Jeff and Bob get out of bed in the middle of the night. "The kids have seen a lot of changed plans," Jeff chuckled, but, "we are never on a schedule."

"We are pleased to be able to see families through their loss and guide them through a difficult time," Jeff said.

Jeff, Bill and Bob are members of, and participate in, different local organizations including the Webster Chamber of Commerce, Webster Arboretum, Lions Club, Masonic Lodge, American Legion, Webster Comfort Care, Webster Fire Department, Cub Scouts, and local churches. Bill served on the Chamber's Board of Directors and as President from 1982 to 1984.

Schantz Homes
Celebrates 60th Anniversary
1946 - 2006

A lot has been written about home: "Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, a dearer spot than all the rest."

On the other hand "home is the place where you can say anything you like 'cause nobody listens to you."

The Schantz family can say they have had a huge part in building the American home for 60 years. The year was 1946. Our service men and woman were coming home from war, looking to share in the American dream they fought hard to preserve. Company founder, Frank Schantz, had a dream of his own - to build the kinds of homes that people really wanted at a price they could afford.

Schantz Homes, Inc. is Monroe County's oldest single-family homebuilder. Sixty years ago, Frank J. Schantz founded the company when the futuristic idea of suburban style housing started. Frank understood the universal desire of home ownership and saw a good business opportunity.

Business was good in the early 1950s when Frank proposed expanding the Village of Webster to accommodate the Village Manor Subdivision of 150 plus homes. Today we know that subdivision by the name of the Schantz tract.

His contemporaries in the business community thought that building way out here - in the country, was a big mistake. However, with the building and expansion of Haloid and Xerox, it proved to be a boon for the homeowner, the Village, Schantz Homes and all of Webster. Even without the Xerox building growth, it proved people were willing to commute that far to live in the suburbs.

Since those days, homebuilding has been a large component of the Webster economy and today generates over 60 million dollars a year.

Schantz Homes has built over 1200 homes in Webster and currently has three active subdivisions, Sunningdale Meadow, Sandystone Wood and Wentworth Park. The dream of Frank J. Schantz continues.

John J. Schantz, Jr. and Stephen Schantz are third generation builders who continue to define the standards of quality craftsmanship.

Wilbert's Buick and GM Parts
Celebrates 55th Anniversary
1951 - 2006

Art Wilbert is grateful that he can get up each morning and head off to work. For Art, the owner and founder of Wilbert's Buick and GM Parts, work has kept him busy for 55 years. "It's a real pleasure working with my children, Peter, Rick, Barb and Ron," he said.

The Wilbert sons are currently running the business; however that doesn't mean that Art has completely let go as he still attends their morning business meetings everyday at 6:30 a.m.

Wilbert's continues to lead the Automotive Recyclers and has even strengthened their position by becoming a member of Team PRP. The Premium Recycled Parts Team consist of 45 members across the country that are dedicated to further increase the quality and reliability of used parts. By combining their inventories, millions of high quality parts are a stroke of the keyboard away. A private freight system between the yards lowers shipping cost and speeds up delivery. Also with parts that are more reliable, warranties have been increased ranging from 90 days to lifetime. Additionally, Wilbert's have purchased Andy's Auto Parts on Lakeside Road in Ontario, N.Y. Much work is being done there to modernize the facility and bring it up to Wilbert's standards. The new facility, to be called Wilbert's Lakeside will handle parts for all foreign and domestic cars. Together both facilities employ over 45 people from the community.

Art's office looks out at the farm home he was born in and the Christmas tree farm his family cultivates. Like the parts business the Christmas tree farm has developed quite the reputation in the Rochester area.

Art's deep roots in Webster and his generosity to his church and community have earned him numerous awards. A few years ago the family donated property (where the first school house in Webster was built in 1813 on State Road) to the Webster Museum.

Art enjoys giving back to the community which has blessed him so many times - with almost 85 years in "Webster, Where Life is Worth Living" and He lives it!

Heberle Disposal
Celebrates 45th Anniversary
1961 - 2006

It is said that more time is spent carrying out garbage than carrying in food. Most likely, the Heberle family would agree (although they weren't asked about that detail of their business.)

Heberle Disposal Services, Inc. is a family owned and operated waste removal business servicing Rochester and the surrounding communities for over 45 years.

Thomas Heberle Sr. started the company in 1960 along with his wife, Melanie. The waste removal business started with one used truck and 500 customers. Tom's dedication and perseverance propelled Heberle Disposal into its next phase. In 1972, Thomas Heberle Jr. joined his father full time with one goal in mind, continuing the company's growth. In the mid 1990's Tom Jr. helped launch the recycling portion of the business. In compliance with the New York State environmental laws, Heberle Disposal offers this service to all of its residentialand commercial customers as a way to encourage recycling and to secure their part in helping make a cleaner environment.

Today, the third generation has joined the family business. Matthew Heberle, Tom Jr's eldest son, while attending the Rochester Institute of Technology for business management, is working hand in hand with his father and grandfather, learning the day to day operations of the disposal industry.

Heberle Disposal currently maintains over 13,000 residential customers and approximately 3,000 commercial customers. Their fleet has grown to 40 trucks and currently has 60 employees. Continuous commitment and dedication from the Heberle family has made this company what it is today.

Heberle Disposal prides itself on quality service at a competitive price. The Heberle family and staff remain committed to their promise to provide customers with quality trash and recycling removal services.

Gerard P. Smith Agency Inc.
Celebrates 40th Anniversary
1966 - 2006

The Gerald Smith Insurance Agency started small. In fact Tom, the oldest of Gerry and Maryjean's six sons, remembers his dad setting up a desk and a telephone in the family room of their home. "He made $3000 that first year, - literally!" he said. "But he knew he could make it happen!" he added.

In 1971, The Gerard P. Smith Agency moved out of the family room and into a village storefront, renting from the Utz's. His only employee at the time was Terry Baker who remained with the agency for 25 years.

With the list of clients growing, more help was hired. Again the firm found it necessary to move, this time to the big white house on West Main Street. At the time, with 12 employees, "we knew that we couldn't outgrow that," Tom laughed.

In 1981, Gerry's son, Kevin Smith, joined the firm. Now, the Gerard Smith Insurance Building, under the direction of Tom Smith, is located at the Four Corners in the impressive building that once was first, the Marine Midland, then HSBC Bank in the village of Webster.

The Smith's have come a long way since Gerry set up his desk and telephone in the family room. Tom Smith said that he feels blessed. "It's hokey," he said. "I feel like Andy of Mayberry." He loves his job and the community he works in, he said. "How lucky am I?" he asked.

What makes the Smith Agency different?
"We know that any person or business can obtain the same insurance that we sell somewhere else, "he said. "We strive to provide the personal touch. We want every customer or prospective customer to hang up the phone or walk out the door thinking "what nice people! What a nice place to do business!"

If we can make people feel good, we believe that we have done better than most. If we can back it up with superior service, we feel we will continue to prosper."

Tom deserves an extra round of applause for heading the BID (Business Improvement District) this year and for striving to make the Village "the" place to do business. Kevin and Tom run the annual Webster Comfort Care Home's Annual Pledge campaign, the direct mail fund-raising event.

Tom is a former EMT with Union Hill, Webster Chamber Board member, scout leader, soccer coach and Holy Trinity board member.

Kevin is on the fund-raising committee for the Webster BID and an active BID member. He is also a Chamber of Commerce Director, serves on the Case for Business Committee for the Chamber and just completed serving on the Independent Insurance Agents Association of Monroe County Board.

Michael's of Webster Glass & Mirror
Celebrates 35th Anniversary
1971 - 2006

Mike Nadiak got his start in the glass business in 1959 while in high school. He worked after school and summers - and obviously never stopped.

Thirty-five years ago, with all kinds of experience behind him, he started his own company, first on Orchard Street, then on Commercial Street. Currently the glass factory and design studio is located at 182 North Avenue.

Like so many of our longtime Webster businesses, family plays an important part. Mike's two brothers work with him at the company. "Andy has been my manager for years and years," Mike said. He manages the development and fabrication of glass and mirror products. Jerry is his outside mechanic, managing the design /sales and installation of all shower and tub enclosures. Mike insists that they are the best in their field. The company boasts six fulltime workers - "who really work," Mike said.

From mirrored walls, glass top tables, windows, unique glass tops, cabinetry, bath enclosures, and of course, auto glass, Michael's Glass has - well, class.

The company's motto is; "We are your image maker." They work with interior decorators where transformation of ideas become reality

His company works with builders throughout the county and beyond. "I've been all over. I have worked in over 220,000 homes in the Rochester area," he said. All are invited to visit his showroom and take a gander at his lovely designs.

He married Patti Guinta (she is sister to Joe of Webster Cleaners - this is still Webster) 18 years ago and they are longtime members of the Webster Chamber of Commerce.

Besides enjoying his craft, Mike is grateful for the interesting people he has met because of his business, people throughout the industry, his company and in the community.

Celebrates 35th Anniversary
1971 - 2006

Paychex is proof of the power of a good idea.

B. Thomas Golisano started the company in 1971 with $3000 and an idea. He outlined how easy and affordable it would be for companies including small businesses to out source their payroll processing. He did his homework - saw the huge untapped market - 98 percent of American businesses have fewer than 100 employees.

Golisano went to his employer at the time, a regional payroll processor for big business, with his plan. The company wasn't interested, so Golisano, who believed in his idea and himself, struck out on his own. He launched Paychex with just one employee.

At that time, other processors preferred to deal with companies that had 50 or more employees. Golisano flew under their radar by targeting much smaller enterprises. Today, while Paychex is a giant that racked up $1.4 billion in revenues over the past 12 months, it remains firmly focused on small business. Its average customer has just 14 employees.

They are currently a top national provider of payroll, human resource and benefits outsourcing solutions for businesses in the United States. The Paychex services available to clients include 401 (k) record keeping, workers' compensation administration, larger payroll processing, and very comprehensive human resource outsourcing called Paychex Premier (SM) Human Resources.

"Our customers are looking for peace of mind. They want to know their employees are being paid accurately and that they are in total compliance with all state and federal regulations. So that is what our clients are buying", Golisano told Business Week Boston Bureau Manager William Symonds.

Paychex has more than 100 locations around the country serving hundreds of thousands of clients nationwide.

Webster is home to its new Information Technology Center. More than 500 employees were relocated from Penfield to the former PSC, Inc. building at 675 Basket Road. Today the company serves approximately 522,000 clients.

Thomas Landscape and Design, Inc.
Celebrates 30th Anniversary
1976 - 2006

Dick Thomas's style is obvious around Webster. Crossing over the Rt. 104 bridge for example: his Webster landscaping with the sailboat, on the hill, welcomes us back home. Last month Dick and his crew from Thomas Landscape and Design completed planting the begonias, coleus and dusty millers in the Wegmans' parking lots. Throughout the summer and fall, they maintain the plantings for our enjoyment.

Dick admits he loves what he does.and it shows. Since he was a teenager he's worked in the landscaping field then chose it for a career, with no regrets.

His big news is that now, after 30 years in the business, he is doubling the retail space. The landscape and design company at 775 Ridge Road is expanding into a large full-fledged "garden center with flair" Dick said. This will be "different from the usual," he added. The little colorful shed with shutters, that's for sale by the flowering rhododendrons and azaleas, may give shoppers an idea of what "different from the usual" means.

Black lava rock, landscaped size-rocks, stone of all sorts, and 16 different mulches make there way to Webster, transported from all over the country and Canada. No doubt, Dick has the best selection of mulches on the eastern for every imaginable landscape. One of his favorites is a new pine straw mulch from Georgia, and Black Stained Cedar from Canada. Unusual? Yes!

When the new center is completed, Dick will add retail sales to the list of operations that Thomas's business performs. Shoppers will enjoy a new place to buy a posy or a shrub.

The company will continue to specialize in lawn, tree, and shrub maintenance, landscaping design, patio, walkway and pond installation, decorative fencing stone and mulch. He and his crew will continue to focus on spring and fall clean up; shrub and ornamental tree pruning, bed mulching, weeding and edging, lawn fertilization, insect and weed control and even lawn cutting. Whew! If it is outside - they do it.

Quality Vitamin Center
Celebrates 30th Anniversary
1976 - 2006

Quality Vitamin Center opened for business at 31 North Ave in April 1976.

Morris and Josephine Wanderman knew that there was a future in natural vitamins, "and now we all know that was true," said their daughter, Donna.

Josephine, who was known as The Vitamin Lady helped the customers choose the correct supplements, while her husband Morris, ran the business end of the shop. "People often asked them how they could spend 24 hours together," Donna said. Their answer was, "Because we believe in and love what we are doing," she said.

In 1986, Morris passed away and their daughter, Donna joined her mother in the business. She has been there ever since. Store hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
